Mother Teresa was a friend of silence. As author Kerry Weber writes, "The reason silence was so important to her is because it offers us the opportunity to begin shedding false understandings of ourselves and the world. It clears a space for the recognition that converts. Silence and prayer become the wombs in which we’re reborn. They 'enlarge the heart until it is capable of containing God’s gift of himself.'" The following words are from Mother Teresa herself.
