In This Time of Preparation

‘Silence is so lacking in this world which is often too noisy,
which is not favorable to recollection and listening to the voice of God. 
In this time of preparation for Christmas, 
let us cultivate interior recollection, 
so as to receive and keep Jesus in our lives.’

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI 


  1. Amen to that!!! Let's all unplug!! Thank You

  2. Oh Nancy, thank you for this post. It has indeed been 3 days where silence was so lacking. And with only 3 such days, I'm coming to Sunday feeling dry and shriveled and unfulfilled, although I've lived as close to Him as I could these days.

    Interior recollection....I think I need to step back from myself and my efforts; to empty my heart of myself and let the Holy Spirit scatter its cheerful beams within me - because my version of inner silence is pretty lousy!

    1. I like the thought of stepping back from MYSELF, and MY efforts. Yes, that is what I need to as well! Thanks!
