"There is one great question: how can man really be in the image of God? He must enter into silence." Robert Cardinal Sarah This book helps you discover how to remove the external and internal noise which plagues modern man and woman. I have a greater peace after reading this book. Being made aware of the danger of noise, I now control it instead of letting the noise control me. In the silence, I am growing closer to God. "The greatest things are accomplished in silence-----not in the clamor and display of superficial eventfulness, but in the deep clarity of inner vision; in the almost imperceptible start of decision, in quiet overcoming and hidden sacrifice. Spiritual conception happens when the heart is quickened by love, and the free will stirs to action. The silent forces are the strong forces. Let us turn now to the stillest event of all, stillest because it came from the remoteness beyond the noise of any possible intrusion------from God. " Romano Guardini, The Lord --- Pg 21, The Power of Silence.
