God Loves Our Silence

Stained_glass_window_of_nativityEvery day in December I practice for Christmas. If it’s not the school children’s play, it’s a group’s pre-Mass program for one of the Advent or Christmas liturgies. During the 11:30 p.m. program before the Christmas midnight Mass the narrators says,   “People of God, steep yourselves in mystery and stay in silence. There are not words enough for such an incarnation!  Only a God immense would dare to become so terribly small.” When we pray, we don’t have to say anything; just be in grateful awe.  God loves our silence, as well as our prayers.

Come to me, God of Silence.
