"Make no doubt about it, the ability to listen to another, to sit silently in the presence of God, to give sober heed, and to ponder is the nucleus of Benedictine spirituality. It may, in fact, be what is most missing in a century saturated with information but short on Gospel reflection. The Word we seek is speaking in the silence within us. Blocking it out with the static nonsense day in and day out, relinquishing the spirit of silence, numbs the Benedictine heart in a noise-polluted world." Joan Chittister
