The greatest things are accomplished in silence

"The grace of Easter is a profound silence, an immense peace, and a pure taste in the soul. It is a taste of heaven...The Pachal vision does not consist in a rapture of the spirit; it is the silent discovery of God."
This is a quote from Cardinal Sarah from The Power of Silence, p.106.

As I am very much into our call to create, to embrace silence, I am going to be using some quotes about the value of silence in our lives during these holy days after Easter.

The Power of Silence begins with a quote from Romano Guardini's The Lord: " The greatest things are accomplished in silence--not in the clamor and display of superficial eventfulness, but in the deep clarity of inner vision; in the almost imperceptible start of decision, in the quiet overcoming and hidden sacrifice. Spiritual conception happens when the heart is quickened by love, and the free will stirs to action. The silent forces are the strong forces. Let us turn now to the stillest event of all, stillest because it came from the remoteness beyond the noise of any possible intrusion--from God."

I hope each of my readers find some silence in each day to be able to listen to the silent voice of God who speaks to us in the depths of our silent hearts.
