Q: Thank you, as ever, for your blog posts, which provide so much guidance, wisdom, expertise, food for thought, and pastoral suggestions. I always recommend that people sign up to receive them.

I’ve been meaning for some time to respond to your post on silence with a link to a document produced for England and Wales by Martin Foster (on behalf of our Bishops’ Conference Department for Christian Life & Worship), in which he gathered references to silence from several sources.I often recommend that people search for topics in GIRM and our national “Celebrating the Mass”(, but sometimes it’s good to have everything together in one place, and this document provides an opportunity for reflection (and maybe discussion in a parish) as well as just listing those references.


Q: Thank you for sharing these wonderful resources. They will truly help enter into the Christian mystery.
