In a time when technology penetrates our lives in so many ways and materialism exerts such a powerful influence over us, Cardinal Robert Sarah presents a bold book about the strength of silence. The modern world generates so much noise, he says, that seeking moments of silence has become both harder and more necessary than ever before. Silence is the indispensable doorway to the divine, explains the cardinal in this profound conversation with Nicolas Diat. Within the hushed and hallowed walls of the La Grande Chartreux, the famous Carthusian monastery in the French Alps, Cardinal Sarah addresses the following questions: Can those who do not know silence ever attain truth, beauty, or love? Do not wisdom, artistic vision, and devotion spring from silence, where the voice of God is heard in the depths of the human heart? After the international success of God or Nothing, Cardinal Sarah seeks to restore to silence its place of honor and importance. "Silence is more important than any other human work," he says, "for it expresses God. The true revolution comes from silence; it leads us toward God and others so as to place ourselves humbly and generously at their service."… (lisätietoja)

ENGLISH: A good book that delves us into the mystery of silence. The Cardinal is a disciple of Benedict XVI, a clear reference in current theology. There is talk of true silence, that of the soul, which has little to do with physical silence or that of oriental techniques. It is the silence of love, which is much deeper. This is Christian silence. Words are not enough. He is the one with a mother when he listens to his son or when you accompany a sick friend in the hospital. The Cardinal gives guidelines to achieve this silence, always from the Christian orbit. Describe the difficulties in reaching him in today's society.

Review in Spanish at this blog post.

ESPAÑOL: Un buen libro que nos adentra en el misterio del silencio. El Cardenal es discípulo de Benedicto XVI, claro referente en la teología actual. Se habla del verdadero silencio, el del alma, que poco tiene que ver con el silencio físico o el de las técnicas orientales. Es el silencio del amor, que es mucho más profundo. Esto es el silencio cristiano. Las palabras no bastan. Es el que tiene una madre cuando escucha a su hijo o cuando acompañas en el hospital a un amigo enfermo. El Cardenal da pautas para conseguir este silencio, siempre desde la órbita cristiana. Describe las dificultades para llegar a él en la sociedad actual.

El cardenal Sarah afronta en estas páginas la necesidad del silencio interior para escuchar la música de Dios, para que brote y se desarrolle la oración confiada con Él. El ruido nos impone su dictadura un día y otro, hasta el punto de que rara vez añoramos el silencio. Sin embargo, el ruido genera el desconcierto del hombre, mientras que en el silencio se forja nuestro ser personal, nuestra propia identidad. Tras el éxito internacional de Dios o nada, el cardenal Sarah afronta en estas páginas la necesidad del silencio interior para escuchar la música de Dios, para que brote y se desarrolle la oración confiada con Él, para entablar relaciones cabales con nuestros allegados. "La verdadera revolución -afirma- viene del silencio, que nos conduce hacia Dios y los demás, para colocarnos humildemente a su servicio". De nuevo en esta larga y profunda conversación con Nicolás Diat, el Cardenal propone la siguiente pregunta: ¿pueden aquellos que no conocen el silencio alcanzar la verdad, la belleza y el amor? La respuesta es innegable: todo lo que es grande y creativo está relacionado con el silencio. Casa del Libro

Definitely found it to be not what I thought it was going to be. The title drew me to text and I didn't bother doing much (any!) research on it. So I ended up missing that the author is a Cardinal and that God is going to be basically on every page. This is not a detriment and I'm not hating on it in any way. But I tend to not really care for and shy away from overly religious texts (they genuinely don't interest me) and I wish I had realized this before picking it up.

Aside from that, the format is quite funky. It's a conversational/interview style text and while that has its merits I also feel that is a format that is better suited for magazine articles rather than a book. So unfortunately this ended up being a book completely not for me at all.

It seems there are plenty of people who did end up enjoying this and I'll bet that I'm not the audience for it. And I would probably like to read a text in this vein, even if books about/around religion just aren't my thing. But this was probably a book I should have never picked up and I would recommend skipping this one if you're someone who is more interested in a non-religious view on silence and don't like conversational/interview-style texts.

"Se le nostre intelligenze non sanno più fermare gli occhi, se non sappiamo più tacere, allora saremo privati del mistero, della sua luce che è al là delle tenebre, della sua bellezza che è oltre ogni bellezza. Senza il mistero, siamo ridotti alla banalità delle cose terrene. Spesso mi chiedo se la tristezza delle società urbane occidentali, in cui dilaga la depressione, il suicidio e il disagio morale, non derivi dalla perdita del senso del mistero. Perdendo la capacità di fare silenzio davanti al mistero, gli uomini si privano delle sorgenti della gioia. In effetti, si ritrovano soli al mondo, senza niente che li superi e li sostenga ..."

"La civiltà moderna non sa tacere. Continua sempre nel suo monologo.. La società postmoderna rifiuta il passato e guarda al presente come un mero oggetto di consumo; vede il futuro attravreso i raggi di un progresso pressocchè ossessivo. Il suo sogno, divenuto triste realtà, era di rinchiudere il silenzio in una prigione umida e scura.

C'è ormai una dittatura della parola, una dittatura dell'enfasi verbale. In questo teatro di ombre, non rimane che una ferita purulenta di parole meccaniche, senza valore, senza verità e senza fondamento. Molto spesso, la verità non è altro che una pura e mendace creazione mediatica corroborata da immagini e testimonianze prefabbricate. E la parola di Dio, quindi è oscurata, resa inaccessibile e inudibile. La postmodernità è un'offesa e un'aggressione permanente contro il silenzio divino. Dalla mattina alla sera e dalla sera alla mattina il silenzio non ha più alcun diritto; il rumore vuole impedire a Dio stesso di parlare. In questo inferno di rumore, l'uomo si disgrega e si perde; è frammentato in altrettante inquietudini, fantasmi e paure.

Per uscire da questi tunnel depressivi, l'uomo desidera disperatamente il rumore perchè gli dia qualche consolazione. Il rumore è un ansiolitico ingannatore, che dà assuefazione, è menzognero. Il dramma del nostro mndo non si potrà mai comprendere che nel furore di un rumore privo di senso che odia ostinatamente il silenzio. Quest'epoca detesta ciò a cui ci porta il silenzio: l'incontro, lo stupore e l'inginocchiarsi davanti a Dio."

The Power of Silence: Against the Dictatorship of Noise is a good book but it's subtitle is misleading. It should read the Carthusian Way. This is a book mostly in praise of the Carthusian monastic rule of silence, which is it's focus. There's nothing wrong with that it just wasn't what I expected. Cardinal Sarah did address society's overexposure to media, electronic noise, and the cacophony of modern life, but mostly in passing.

Another difficulty I had was Cardinal Sarah didn't define "silence" until very late in the book so I had trouble understanding. Early on, I began substituting the word "stillness" for silence and that helped.

I recommend this book to anyone interested understanding monastic spirituality. It was a good book, just not what I hoped for. ( )
