The fruit of silence is prayer;
The fruit of prayer is faith;
The fruit of faith is love;
The fruit of love is service;
The fruit of service is peace.
These are the words that Mother Theresa (now officially a saint) had printed on her “business” card that she handed to people when they met her. There was no personal info on the card, just this. That tells me that not only did this sum up her approach to life, it summed up who she saw herself as a person.
I could use some silence and all its fruits. How about you?
