Silence is Especially Golden at Christmas

May you find silence in your life, especially at Christmas.

The Silent Night was a holy night. All was calm, Bethlehem slept. In silence He came to Mary. In silence He comes to us, when we are free of the noise of men and from the desires that tempt our human nature. His wondrous gift to man was given in the stillness of the night. For silence is “the virtue of the strong, the refuge of the weak, the modesty of the proud and the prudence of the wise.” Silence is a preface to prayer; it is the prologue to progress, it is a prerequisite of peace. Be still my soul that I may hear Him in the silence of the Christmas night.
A poem by Arthur Storz

Have a joyous Christmas!!!
