Since entering the convent I have become more aware of the “noisyness” of our society. What I mean by that is that it is so easy to fill our time with noise of some sort. Music, TV, Internet, cell phones, etc. Not to say that any of the above is bad in the least, but that one can easily acquire the habit of neglecting the need for silence. For me at least, it is hard to think with so much noise. So, I have come to cherish my quiet time very much. What is so funny is that I didn’t think my life was “noisy” before. Interesting how perspectives change.
Well, I’m off to do some more studying. Have a great day!
May the Lord give you peace.
