Silent Communion

The most intimate time we can share with another is done in silence.  Being in the silent presence of a loved one and sharing time together is perhaps the closest we come to perfect communion with each other.  All words try to describe this intimacy we share when we are in the silent presence of a loved one. 

Often we get disheartened when we fail to find the words to pray when we are trying to be close to God.  The power of silence, however, should not be underestimated.  All prayer and contemplation, if done successfully, will lead us into silent communion with our God, where we feel nothing but his overpowering peace and love.
