The rocks in the sea ….

Have you ever noticed rocks in the sea, beaten by the tempest? A furious wave dashes against the rock, another and yet another does likewise, yet the rock is unmoved. But look at it after the storm has subsided, and you will see that the flood has but served to wash and purify it of the defilement it had contracted during the calm. Hereafter I wish you to be as a rock. A wave dashes against you? Silence! It assails you ten, a hundred, a thousand times? Silence!  (St. Paul of the Cross)

    Splendid : SILENCE
    How very difficult to remain silent in the midst of our daily trials and tribulations.
    Help me sweet Jesus to learn and to love SILENCE and remain silent .
