happy – 3/17/14

Tellingly, the word “silence” doesn’t appear in the Confessions of St. Patrick. “Silent” does, but generally negated:

 

What is more, let anyone laugh and taunt if he so wishes. I am not keeping silent, nor am I hiding the signs and wonders that were shown to me by the Lord many years before they happened, [he] who knew everything, even before the beginning of time. – (From a section bookmarked as “Baptizes a Beautiful Irish Princess”)

 

In our silence-activism, we remember that the device of silence is a means to charity
