Lenten Reflection, March 10th

In silence, there is humility of spirit or what might be called “wise passivity.” In such the ear is more important than the tongue. God speaks, but not in Cyclones–only in zephyrs and gentle breezes. As a scientist learns by sitting passively before nature, so the soul learns wisdom by being responsive to His Will. The scientist does not tell nature its laws; nature tells the scientist. We do not tell or impose our will on God; in silence like Mary, we await an Annunciation.  ~ Fulton J. Sheen
