Holy Silence: A Practical Guide to Recollection in God

The Word who spoke, “Let there be light” into creation is the same Word who guarded the people of Israel as the “apple of His eye” (Deut 32:10), and who spoke, “You are the light of the world” (Mt 5:14) to His disciples. He speaks this same word to each of us, His children, who are bound by the darkness of self-rejection.

From the beginning, the devil has sown lies and doubts into our hearts about our true identity and the Father’s love and care for us. It is in the Father’s gaze of love that we discover who we really are – His own beloved children, heirs to His kingdom, partakers of the Divine nature, and the very light of His eyes. In fact, His own light is within each of us – a light that radiates to a suffering world.

The Son of God came into the world in order to set us free from the devil’s lies, to show us who we are and what the Father’s love for His children looks like. God speaks to His children’s hearts and gives to each the graces they need in abundance, beckoning to us from the cross to receive what He is continually pouring out over us.

We all have a story to tell – a story that is both unique and riveting. Through engaging our stories, we begin to discover a God who has entered into the very heart of our wounds, and who is waiting for us to encounter Him within our wounds, thereby discovering intimate love and healing.

Mother Illiana invites you here to walk with her though a little part of her story – a journey from self-contempt to basking in the gaze of the Father’s delight in me – the same delight with which He is gazing at you.


The Power of Silence - Against the Dictatorship of Noise

In a time when technology penetrates our lives in so many ways and materialism exerts such a powerful influence over us, Cardinal Robert Sarah presents a bold book about the strength of silence. The modern world generates so much noise, he says, that seeking moments of silence has become both harder and more necessary than ever before.

Silence is the indispensable doorway to the divine, explains the cardinal in this profound conversation with Nicolas Diat. Within the hushed and hallowed walls of the La Grande Chartreux, the famous Carthusian monastery in the French Alps, Cardinal Sarah addresses the following questions: Can those who do not know silence ever attain truth, beauty, or love?  Do not wisdom, artistic vision, and devotion spring from silence, where the voice of God is heard in the depths of the human heart?

After the international success of God or Nothing, Cardinal Sarah seeks to restore to silence its place of honor and importance. "Silence is more important than any other human work," he says, "for it expresses God. The true revolution comes from silence; it leads us toward God and others so as to place ourselves humbly and generously at their service."
