Be Still

February 4, 2019

Another gem from Swiss Catholic thinker Max Picard which echoes Psalm 46:10 and which lies at the heart of our Eucharistic Franciscan life.

“Nothing has changed the nature of man so much as the loss of silence. The invention of printing, techniques, compulsory education–nothing has so altered man as this lack of relationship to silence, this fact that silence is no longer taken from granted as something as natural as the sky above or the air we breathe. Man who has lost silence has not merely lost one human quality, but his whole structure has been changed thereby.” — Max Picard
