Stiltegebed van Ton de Nooy

Silent Prayer

Silent Prayer by Ton de Nooy. What evolved into a “monastic laboratory” he founded in 1976 as the Jan XVII Foundation, ‘‘Center for Monastic Traditions.

May there be peace
in our heart
rest in our mind
and silence
in the depths of our being.

that silence
in which we
will hear something
of the sound
of the name
given to us
from the beginning.

A name
that love is
light and life.
