Wisdom from Mother Teresa

“The fruit of Silence is Prayer
The fruit of Prayer is Faith
The fruit of Faith is Love
The fruit of Love is Service
The fruit of Service is Peace”

Mother Teresa

It starts in silence with our Lord, but how neglected is this practice in our fast past, hurried world? Our calendars are full, our brains are busy, our phones are in our hands while our computer and TV screens call out to us. And then we wonder why we can’t find peace.

Make room today, slow down, listen, and be silent. I think those that can find silence and stillness in this busy world have a spiritual advantage over those who don’t. Be attentive today. Be silent.
