Gods Silence

Pope Benedict on God’s Silence; Verbum Domini (God the Father, source and origin of the word)

“This experience of Jesus reflects the situation of all those who having heard and acknowledged God’s word, must also confront his silence.This has been the experience of countless saints and mystics, and even today is part of the journey of many beleivers.God’s silence prolongs his earlier words.In these moments of darkness, he speaks through the mystery of his silence.Hence, in the dynamic of Christian revelation, silence appears as an important expression of the word of God.”
