  • God’s mother tongue must be silence!

    The first unwritten scripture was coded in silence, millions of years ago, before humans arrived on this planet. That continues to be the language of creation.

    I regard silence held in love as the best prayer ground before God.

    It is not uncommon for grieving loved ones to experience what psychologists call “After Death Communication,” in which the bereaved believe that they see, hear the voices of, or even smell their dead loved ones.

    These experiences, sometimes called “bereavement hallucinations,” can be healing and comforting for those who grieve, multiple studies have found.

    The author invites Catholics and church leadership to rekindle the faith in the resurrection, reexamine the prevailing traditions around All Saints Day and All Souls Say and to express faith in inaccurate ways in light of the Christian mystery.
