"...Another word we could use is ‘stillness’ because silence is not merely or even mostly the absence of external sounds assailing your ears. All noise is experienced in the mind and it can come to us through our eyes or our memories or our plans for the future or our fantasies just as much as it can through barking dogs or pumped up sound systems. Stillness is that state where our mind is free of all such intrusions and the chatter has all stopped. As such it requires a positive act of creation not just a negative act of exclusion...."

"It is certainly true that Our Lady’s sorrows constituted historical episodes in the life of Jesus as experienced in the heart of Mary. As such they form part of salvation history as well as of general history. More than that though, I would argue, we can see these sorrows as archetypal. That is, the experience of Mary is a template of universal human experience. We go through what she went through, save that Mary experienced it to the highest possible degree..."

"" To leave behind everything and everyone known, to head out into the night towards the unknown through a barren and dangerous land is not a thing that a mother with her newborn son would naturally do. Yet Mary unhesitatingly did it, not because she faced danger but because He did. This is active love.."
