Silence is Golden

If you are going to talk in my house, please talk to Me.

I am in the tabernacle.

I am the Blessed Sacrament.

Tell Me all your problems and between us we can solve them all.

Please don't distract anyone else from talking to Me in my house.


Please show reverence to the Blessed Sacrament in church.

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness.


God is the friend of silence.See how nature - trees, flowers, grass - grow in silence. The more we receive in silent prayer, the more we can give in our active life.


We need silence to be able to touch souls.  


The essential thing is not what we say, but what God says to us and through us. All our words will be useless unless they come from within - words which do not give the light of Christ, increase the darkness.
