As requested by some parishioners, the poem used at Mass last weekend

SILENTIUM ( Silence)
Be silent, hide away and let
Your thoughts and longings rise and set
In the deep places of your heart.
Let dreams move silently as stars,
In wonder more than you can tell.
Let them fulfill you-and be still.

What heart can ever speak its mind?
How can some other understand
The hidden pole that turns your life?
A thought, once spoken, is a lie.
Don’t cloud the water in your well;
drink from this wellspring-and be still.

Live in yourself. There is a whole
Deep world of being in your soul,
burdened with mystery and thought.
The noise outside will. snuff it out.
Day’s clear light can break the spell.
Hear your own singing-and be still.

Fyodur Tyutchev 1803-1873
