Silence gives consent

Silence gives consent

After first vespers of the fifth Sunday of Lent we enter the beautiful but solemn season of Passiontide

And since the great events of Holy Week are always challenging to enter interiorly [not least because of the increasing demands of everyday life and distractions] I heartily recommend reading [in sections over the next two weeks] The Mental Sufferings of Our Lord in His Passion - Discourse 16 by Blessed John Henry Newman

Here is a link to the complete text. Find time to read it in quiet, silence and peace. Immerse yourself in its richness of language and descriptors and increase the levels of silence in your daily life between now and Holy Saturday, where and when the Grand Silence of the Lord in the tomb is where He awaits our consent to join our sufferings to His.
