"Walking in the way and the love of the Lord"
We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls. ~ Mother Teresa
Above picture is the silence found on The Way of St. James.
...the seed of the world's life, was hidden in Our Lady. Like the wheat seed in the earth, the seed of the Bread of Life was in her. Like the golden harvest in the darkness of the earth, the Glory of God was shrined in her darkness. Advent is the season of the secret, the secret of the growth of Christ, of Divine Love growing in silence. (by Caryll Houselander - THE REED OF GOD)
"[Jesus] wants to live His life in [you], to look through [your] eyes, walk with [your] feet, love with [your] heart." Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
"Come—come—carry Me into the holes of the poor.— Come be My light.—I cannot go alone—they don’t know Me—so they don’t want Me. You come—go amongst them, carry Me with you into them..." (These are some of the words that Jesus addressed to Mother Teresa in 1946.)
During this advent with Mary, let us form Jesus within us!

Saint James, pray for us that we may be willing to leave everything to follow Jesus as you did. Help us to become special friends of Jesus as you were. Amen
