The Power of Silence by Robert Cardinal Sarah | A Book Fair Favorite

In a world filled with distractions and noise, it's easy to feel overwhelmed. During the Lenten season, we are called to resist the world's many temptations and place our trust in the Lord. To trust Jesus requires an inner peace, a recognition that God is not found in the howling winds or the roaring fire, but in the gentle whisper of silence (1 Kings 19:11-13). Cardinal Sarah seeks to recover the beauty of silence in his book The Power of Silence. This book is a perfect choice for moms and dads visiting the Ignatius Book Fairs.

In an interview with Nicolas Diat, Cardinal Sarah rejects modern society's “dictatorship of noise,” and offers advice on how to recover peace by quieting our hearts and minds. Sarah also addresses the tough questions regarding God’s silence in the face of our sufferings and in opposition to evil. With an afterword by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, The Power of Silence will help you fight back against the world’s noise this Lent and regain peace in the love of Christ.
