Tomorrow is a strange day. It comes as a surprise. We are finally hitting a certain rhythm with classes and then suddenly, we find the rhythm broken by the Quiet Day.
The idea is simple: students will keep silence from Morning Prayer to the Eucharist. Ideally, we will find some space to think, walk, pray, perhaps read, think, and create some space for God to be present.
In the end, listening to God is the most important part of Seminary (indeed the most important of all life). We live constantly surrounded by sound. For one day, we take quiet seriously. So put away your music, forget your podcasts, don’t turn on Netflix, and resist the temptation to do an assignment or get ahead with the reading. Instead, take just one day – tomorrow – to be quiet before our Lord.
