Silence is necessary for a true sacramental life: it leads to adoration, to a personal encounter with the Living God. Before the Divine Majesty, we are at a loss for words. Who would dare speak up in the presence of the Almighty? For this reason, I am pleased to encourage the reading of this St. Faustina Prayer Book for Adoration. May St. Faustina's wisdom help us tame the "dictatorship of noise" through silencing our eyes and ears in order that for our hearts "faith provides a supplement for the failure of the senses"!
