The life of a priest needs, but misses silence a lot, like the deer misses the good steams of water. If I open my heart to people and friends, they will see that one of the best things I like to do is to be in total silence for a time. The way I do it is usually to retreat in prayer, and I do it in the following order…Read More

All of a sudden there was this one man, a black male in his upper age, no teeth in the front, walking slowly as he is so well acquainted with such situations. Read more
