Many people today look for silence, solitude and peace. They dream of places where they can rest, away from the daily hassles of living which tear them apart, exhaust them and leave them dissatisfied, wounded and bleeding–and always alone.
But they won’t necessarily find peace and quiet waiting for them in other places. There is a place within us where quiet reigns–the centre, our heart of hearts. There we can find him who is the plenitude of silence. But who will guide us there? We must learn the way. Michel Quoist, WITH OPEN HEART
