Saying of the Desert Christians: Silence 3


Abba Nilus said, "The arrows of the enemy cannot touch one who loves
quietness; but he who moves about in a crowd will often be wounded."

Some thoughts: Seems to me this is saying that when we make quietness a
habit, get it deep into our hearts, we with God's help will have created a
hermitage within our hearts that is with us wherever we are and we are
protected from whatever would attempt to draw us away from God.
