Rest Silently in Resurrection

OPreach

Most surely, in the thin places, the Irish teach us to sense another reality Most surely, in the thin places, the Irish teach us to sense another reality

Those who do not know there is another life after this one, or who cannot bring themselves to live in time as if they were meant to spend their eternity in God, resist the fruitful silence of their own being by continual noise. Even when their own tongues are still, their minds chatter without end and without meaning, or they plunge themselves into the protective noise of machines, traffic or radios. When their own noise is momentarily exhausted, they rest in the noise of other people.

– Thomas Merton, No Man Is an Island
