Silence

Here is a very helpful video on silence by Abbot Christopher Jamison, a Benedictine monk, based at Worth Abbey, UK.

 

“The one who sits in solitude and quiet has escaped from three wars: hearing, speaking and seeing; yet against one thing shall he continually battle: that is, his own heart.”

Anthony of Egypt



 

“Put succinctly, a retreat is an intentional time away for prayer.”

Margaret Guenther, The Practice of Prayer



 
 

“In the prayerful silence of a retreat, we are listening and receptive. Such prayerful silence is more than the absence of noise, more than refraining from the spoken word. It invites us to an inner stillness, active and creative, fully open to the encounter with God.”

Margaret Guenther, The Practice of Prayer
