Reflection for March


'Be still
and know
that I am

Psalm 46:10

Silence with God . . . 

we do not create it;
we never 'achieve' it;
we cannot possess it.

We simply enter it.

It is a gift.

As we plunge into the clear, tranquil pool of prayer,
the Holy Spirit permeates us
with the quiet surprise of deep peace.

'From his fullness we have all received,
grace upon grace.'

John 1:16
