We need to create spaces of silence ….

Pope Benedict XVI said on 7th February 2008 when speaking to priests of the Diocese of Rome “It seems to me that the time of Lent should be a time of fasting from words and images, because we need a little silence, a little space, without being constantly bombarded with images. We need to create spaces of silence … to open our hearts to the true image, the true word”.
