"God's first language is Silence."
- Thomas Keating

Be still and know
… God.
- Psalm 46: 10

God and the New Science


Our Beloved Thomas Keating, although no longer with us, taught us the surrender to silence that is God’s first language but also followed the footprints of God in the sciences, helping us to realize that the spiritual journey is meant to open us to the oneness of God with all creation and especially the human family. I know that Fr. Thomas wants us to continue the great adventure.

it reveals what it contains, that is, divine life;
and divine life reveals that the Ultimate Reality is love."
