Dear brothers and sisters,
This Sunday I would like to share a few lines from Thomas Merton's Book of Hours I prayed this morning with tears in my eyes:
"... Father I praise you, with all these my brothers and sisters,
and they give voice to my own heart and to my own silence.
We are all one silence, and a diversity of voices.
You have made us together.
you have made us many,
you have placed me here in the midst as witness,
as awareness, and as joy.
Here I am.
In me the world is present, an You are present.
I am a link in the chain of light and of presence."
your silent hermit brother
