I have always been drawn to the Carmelite saints and Carmelite spirituality. Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity's writings have spoken volumes to me. She wrote much about the importance of silence; not so much exterior silence, but interior silence.
This brief excerpt from her speaks of going to that place within to be with God in interior silence, even in the busyness of our everyday lives.
The world in which we live is full of noise and activity. Let us look to Elizabeth as an example of how to be still and know that God is God. Let us, as Mary of Bethany, choose the better part, even in the course of our busy and often hectic lives.
