Quote of the Day

When you gain…interior silence you can carry it around with you in the world, and pray everywhere. But just as interior asceticism cannot be acquired without concrete and exterior mortification, so it is absurd to talk about interior silence where there is no exterior silence.

Thomas Merton, The Sign of Jonas
