Words before silence
We pause again in shared silence, that instead of speaking words from our mouths, we may speak love from our hearts.
… We share in that good silence which requires no words.
… We pause now in that shared good silence which requires no words.
… We pause now in that shared good silence which needs no words.
Let us pause now in shared silence. You may wish to recite the prayer of Jesus. You may wish to meditate on the candle. You may wish simply to let your mind wander. But in this place, no matter how we approach it, let us be quiet together.
