Greetings on Clean Wednesday.
These profound silence quotes are by the 7th century St. Isaac of Syria
If you love truth, be a lover of silence. In the beginning we have to force ourselves to be silent. But then, something is born that draws us to silence. May God give you the experience of this something that is born in silence.
Silence is the mystery of the world to come.
Humility collects the soul into a single point by the power of silence. A truly humble man has no desire to be known or admired by others, but wishes to plunge from himself into himself, to become nothing, as if he had never been born. When he is completely hidden to himself in himself, he is completely with God.
Above anything, welcome silence, for it brings fruits that no tongue can speak of, neither can it be explained.
Silence is a mystery of the age to come, but words are instruments of this world.
Not every quiet man is humble, but every humble man is quiet.
May your Lenten Journey be peaceful and fruitful.
