Elizabeth Of The Trinity On Silence
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.

Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity, pray for us!
You must build a little cell within your soul as I do," she wrote to a friend. Remember that God is there and enter it from time to time; when you feel nervous or you're unhappy, quickly seek refuge there and tell the Master all about it. Ah, if you got to know Him a little, prayer wouldn't bore you any more; to me it seems to be rest, relaxation. We come quite simply to the One we love, stay close to Him like a little child in the arms of its mother, and we let our heart go.
