Silence. . . . .

There is something truly special about going to adoration in the middle of the night that is awe-inspiring and very instructional.

In the quiet of the night we come with all of the worries and business of our day and our minds spinning with our thoughts and worries. Our Blessed Lord is present to quietly teach us a lesson. He is simply and silently present for us. He invites us to Himself. He invites us to join Him who fasted in the dessert, praying to His Father.

It is here in the quiet we learn to be like Him. We can learn to empty ourselves and achieve Serenity. Let me accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can. The wisdom to know the difference. The prayer of silent surrender, practicing the presence of God.

Under the Mercy,

Matthew S.
