Readings for Today

I had one of the best retreats I have had in a long time. I was at Gethsemani Abbey in Kentucky, the Trappist community that Thomas Merton joined. While I am not sure why it was such a good retreat, the outcome was clear. I needed to incorporate more silence and prayer into my life. As we focus today on the Assumption of Mary, if we only think of this glorious ending, we could forget that her life was not easy. She faced so many hardships over the course of her life. But she is often described as having treasured things in her heart. In other words, over and over again she was a woman of prayer and silence. Maybe today we can resolve in some small way, to imitate her.
