The Silence of Humility – Shared by Rev. Bill Calhoun

Humility seeks silence not in inactivity but in ordered activity,
in the activity that is proper to our poverty and helplessness before God.
Humility goes to pray and finds silence through words. Even when it speaks, humility listens.
The words of humility are so simple, so gentle and so poor that they find their way without efforts to the silence of God.

Thomas Merton
