“The monastery was silent, yet there was profound beauty in that silence”

Passing through archaic archway of the monastery, I noticed an icon of Christ with the inscription, “Let the love of Christ be the light of your life that guides you”. I stood in awe. The words resonated within the depths of my soul and my heart stirred for whom I loved most, Christ Jesus. An aura of sanctity and reverence pervaded my very being. The monastery was silent, yet there was profound beauty amidst the silence.
