today's other readings are Psalm 27 and Matt. 5: 27-32

Silence. Sheer silence.  That is what Elijah heard when the Lord passed by.  Not a great wind, not an earthquake, not fire, but sheer silence.  

The story is told of St. Anthony of Egypt that when the Patriarch of Alexandria came to visit him in his monastic cell, the saint said nothing.  Enraged, the Patriarch stormed off.  When questioned by his fellow monks as to why he had done so, Anthony replied, "If the Patriarch could not appreciate my silence, how could he appreciate my words?"

Silence is where God is found.  As the Lord spoke through the psalmist, "Be still and know that I am God". (Psalm 46:10)

Want to find God today?  Place yourself before the Lord, and be silent.
