  1. Thank you. I found Stillness and Silence through John Main after I was introduced to passage meditation by E. Easwaran, a Hindu whi keft this world in the late 1990s. Easwaran led me to aooo many great spiritual writers including John Main – Stillness and Silence is so effective foor our spiritual life . Great reminder on St. Francis day. Love Lois

  3. Thank you Father, for a timely reminder that God is wherever we take the time to be with him, to Be Still…
