6 December Reflection Quote

"I should be speaking to you about Our Lord, but it is perhaps better for us to be thinking of him in the silence of our hearts and so preparing ourselves for a deeper knowledge and a greater love of Him." - Madeleine Sophie Barat, Letter 93 to Emilie Giraud, 1828.

Sometimes we feel a pressure to speak about God, or to be able to answer other people’s questions about God. Yet deeper knowledge of God comes from experience.

– are we prepared to wait in silence on experiential knowledge of God?
– what do we know about God that we can share?
– how can we prepare ourselves for a deeper knowledge and greater love of God?
