Making Space

The pope’s General Prayer Intention for September is: “Value of Silence. That people today, often overwhelmed by noise, may rediscover the value of silence and listen to the voice of God and their brothers and sisters.” Jesuit Joe Simmons recalled many today are “buzz-fed”: “But thankfully, even buzz-fed city minds like mine can fall quiet – if given the space.” He was given space at a cottage in his youth. The Prayer Intention of the pope reminds that later in life making space for silence is an adult decision.
