Mary Jo Ervin would like to recommend the book “The Power of Silence,” by Robert Cardinal Sarah of New Guinea, West Africa.  It contains a wonderful conversation with French journalist and author, Nicolas Diat.  This work is a magnificent reflection on the challenges that we, in the Western World face in finding enough silence to actually contemplate and converse with Our Lord. Cardinal Sarah proclaims, “That the truths of the Church find their best manifestation in  a prepared environment where silence reigns. Silence is the gateway,”  Sarah describes, “Where the dictatorship of noise in the modern world and the rush of technology and materialism can be abated through a return to the divine.”

After reading this book, Mary Jo was inspired to write this beautiful poem.
