Silence in itself is a beautiful sound. Silence allows us to hear ourselves. We can contemplate what is going on in our lives and discern what is from God and what is not. We can pray to Jesus or through the Holy Mother, a patron saint, or our Guardian Angel. We can alter the course of our journey. Silence is a rarity today; we should consider it a blessing; and take advantage to the fullest as it may only last a minute or two. Thanks be to God!
