Notable & Quotable


“Silence is essential to hear the Word. To hear the Word is to become sensitive to a Presence that is communicative, a Presence that is speaking to You.”

–from In the Silence of Solitude, by Eugene L. Romano

“We have to remember that we look for solitude in order to grow there in love for God and in love for others. We do not go into the desert to escape people but to learn how to find them: we do not leave them in order to have nothing more to do with them, but to find out the way to do them the most good”. Thomas Merton

“A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and sings it back to you when you have forgotten how it goes.” Anonymous
