Pope Francis has asked us to pray and give thanks for our Consecrated men and women, sisters, brothers and priests. We pray especially for the Religious within our own diocese and in particular in our own parish of Holy Trinity and for the Benedictine Hermitage in Elston. Vocation to Solitude To deliver oneself up, to hand oneself over, entrust oneself completely to the silence of a wide landscape of woods and hills, or sea or desert, to sit still while the sun comes up over that land and fills its silence with light. To pray and work in the morning and to labour and rest in the afternoon, and to sit still again in meditation in the evening when night falls upon that land and when the silence fills itself with darkness and with stars....to belong completely to such silence, to let it soak into the bones, to breathe nothing but silence, to feed on silence, and to turn the very substance of life into a living vigilant silence.
