Kindness

Kindness

“All your past except its beauty is gone, and nothing is left but a blessing.  I have saved all your kindnesses and every loving thought you ever had.  I have purified them of the errors that hid their light, and kept them for you in their own perfect radiance.  They are beyond destruction and beyond guilt.  They came from the Holy Spirit within you, and we know what God creates is eternal.”

Journey Into Silence:  Transformation Through Contemplation, Wonder and Worship

Chaim Bentorah

One of my favorite places to visit, close to my home, is the local Catholic church, St. James.  I go there to get away from the noise and cacophony of life.  The silence in the sanctuary envelopes my soul like a warm blanket on a snowy day.  The whole world seems to pause in absolute quiet.  I enter into the stillness overwhelmed by the cultural clamoring clatter and leave feeling completely calm and peaceful.

This is how I felt while reading Chaim Bentorah’s book, Journey Into Silence:  Transformation Through Contemplation, Wonder and Worship.  With heart-bearing insights, he demonstrates the value and necessity of reflective solitude.  Walk with Chaim Bentorah on his three silent retreats and come to know just how very much you are loved.
