We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature–trees, flowers, grass–grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence. We need silence to be able to touch souls. The more we receive in silent prayer, the more we can give in our active life.
