Quiet Reflection

by Sr Nunother 

A favorite song of mine as a teenager was Simon and Garfunkel’s Sound of Silence.  I think of that phrase sometimes when alone in our church.  Its basilica design, mosaic floor, stone walls and column-lined nave join to produce an ideal acoustic.  The silence itself is vibrant and alive, as if anticipating a beautiful solo, well-spoken scripture or the simple footsteps of worshipers.  Even when rain drops splash the clerestory windows or rattle against the slate roof, the silence maintains its integrity and invites me in.  I set aside intruding thoughts and listen.

About Sr. Nun Other

May 16, 2012, completed my 30th year as a Sister. It was both a milestone and just another day in an interesting journey. Some of those thirty years included singing with Gloriae Dei Cantores, marching in Spirit of America band, and serving on our Sisters Council. As a monastic, I live surrounded by beauty and within a frame work of opportunity and possibility. I'm sixty-four (much to my surprise) and extremely grateful for my life as a sister - past, present, and future.
