The Silent Virgin

The Evangelist Luke describes [Mary] as the silent Virgin who listens constantly to the eternal Word, who lives in the Word of God. Mary treasures in her heart the words that come from God and, piecing them together as in a mosaic, learns to understand them. Let us too, at her school, learn to become attentive and docile disciples of the Lord.  ~Pope Benedict XVI, 1/1/06 Homily

It is good to wait with silence for the salvation of God.   ~Lamentations 3:26

O Mary, Virgin Mother,
teach me your silence,
teach me your love.
