Along with The Benedict Option, Sarah's book offers a clear path for Christians to resist the noise of this fake and hostile world.
Many of my friends have this as well and we all agree, Cardinal Sarah (pronounced Sur-RAH - like Hurrah!) has nailed the Ache, Hunger, Deep Longing palpably present within with our hearts AND the Remedy for the soul's disease in this world of chaos and noise - SILENCE. Not just Quiet - although that is a helpful start - but the Holy Silence drawing one into His Most Holy Presence. Being With God in Silence, Cultivating that cave of the heart! The cave where Elijah waited, the cave of Bethlehem, the cave holding the Body of Jesus awaiting the Resurrection....Here He teaches us to not be afraid of the Silence, not be afraid of the Dark, for He is Present.
Again, like many other holy books, I have found reading this before the Blessed Sacrament the best place to BE with Him all while He is With me.....

I think his patience really shines through in this book and his other book, "God or Nothing".
I find this very refreshing, that he does not in any way compromise on the solid dogmas of the Christian faith, and yet he teaches in a way that is gentle and kind at the same time: a mix that is incredibly difficult to achieve. Because most often in the effort to "be kind" it is so easy to sugar-coat so much of Christ's clear teachings. SO easy to do that!
And yet the good Cardinal does this seemingly without effort, his teaching is so natural and real and practical. May God reward Cardinal Sarah for taking the time out from his incredibly busy life to share with us his wisdom!
Silence is the doorway to the divine, explains His Eminence Robert Cardinal Sarah. Within La Grande Chartreux, the Carthusian Motherhouse in the French Alps, His Eminence addresses these 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?
His Eminence 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."
