The silence was informed by reading and reflecting on God’s Word (Lectio Divina), Taizé prayer, Mass, morning and evening prayer, guided mediation, confession, Eucharistic adoration, and daily conversations with a Spiritual Director. Each day flowed through a rhythm of silence and song. On the last day, I took a walk throughout the beautiful grounds; and in the silence, I found a great symphony.
“We are called to act with justice, to love tenderly, to serve one another, and to walk humbly with God.”
The Catholic Community's Junior High Group took those words from the prophet Micah to heart as they collected presents and served families through their Christmas Outreach Project at St. Justin's Parish in Santa Clara.
