St Joseph’s silence in scripture holds so much weight and meaning – as a space where God could speak in his life. We discuss how to emulate this, by applying passive and active silence into our lives and daily prayer.
Today, it is so easy to fill the quiet moments in our life with noise. Have you noticed this? Do you find yourself itching to turn the music on in the car, even for a five minute drive? Do you constantly need noise, or the presence of other people to avoid your own thoughts? Our thoughts shouldn’t scare us that much! But if they do – and our response is to drown them out – we will never be able to properly deal with them unless we respond by stopping and listening to the silence.
