Silence Killls..............July 2

"Preach the truth
as if we had a million voices,
for it is silence
that kills the world."

St. Catherine of Siena

Just curious that Saint Catherine of Siena told that - she kept eternal silence on the last years of her life, talking only to her confessor in a few times.

Meldelen - Don't you think that maybe what she meant was silence in not speaking up for the abused, poor, those being persecuted?

I'm sure that living as St. Catherine did, she was keeping silence as sacrifice for the gossipers, the name slayers, the useless informers of trash.

Yes of course, I agree with that.

Is that a paper cutting? Lovely!

I love silouhettes (and I fear I did not spell that correctly) ...

Ginny - The holy card is simply a black and white card. Love paper-cut-outs also...aren't they called scherenschnittes? What a talent those are.
