“In a world of noise, confusion and conflict it is necessary that there be places of silence, inner discipline, and peace. In such places love can bloom”. 

Thomas Merton

As we wrap up the Christmas season and count down the days and hours to a new year, this is a wonderful time to pause and reflect. After the birth of Jesus, Mary didn’t just tuck away those experiences but she kept meditating on them.
