Vincentian Inspiration

"It is in silence that we can hear God speak to our hearts."
- St. Vincent de Paul

“En en el silencio que nosotros podemos escuchar a Dios hablarle a nuestros corazones.”

- San Vicente de Paul

You speak to me, Lord, but often I can't hear you
because I don't take time to listen in silence.
I will plan to take time today for quiet reflection.

Tú me hablas, Señor, pero a menudo no te puedo escuchar
porque no tomo un tiempo para escuchar en silencio.
Este día planearé tomar tiempo para una reflexión en silencio.
