We need to find God
and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness.

God is a friend of silence
See how nature–trees, flowers, grass–
grow in silence.
See the stars, the moon, the sun,
how they move in silence

Is not our mission
to give God to the poor?
Not a dead God, but a living, loving God.

The more we receive in silent prayer,
the more we can give in our active life.
We need silence
to be able to touch souls

The essential thing is
not what we say,
but what God says
to us and through us.

All our words will be useless
unless they come from within.
    Words
        which do not give the Light of Christ
        increase the darkness

~Mother Teresa of Calcutta
