The Lost Art of Speaking Silence

If you’re lucky enough to find any quiet in this modern world, those moments probably exist in your life as short breaks from the monotony of inescapable noise.

But this is completely upside down. We were made for a life of silence.

Fr. Mark-Mary reveals the language of God, and challenges us to schedule occasional noise—not occasional silence.

Meet Fr. Mark-Mary

Father Mark-Mary was ordained as a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal (CFR) in 2018 and lives at a friary in the Bronx.

The mission of the CFRs is to wholeheartedly embrace Jesus through fidelity to the Church and her Sacraments. Paired with their commitment to prayer, contemplation, and study of Sacred Scripture, the CFRs serve those around them, especially the poor, in the footsteps of Christ.
