THE TWELVE DEGREES OF SILENCE
Step 9: Silence of judgment [Thy will be done]
Silence with regard to persons, silence with regard to things.
Do not judge, do not allow your own opinion to be perceived. Do not have them, that is, yield with simplicity, if these opinions are not opposed to prudence or charity.
It is the silence of the blessed and holy infancy, it is the silence of the perfect, it is the silence of the Angels and of the Archangels when they carry out the orders of God.
It is the silence of the Incarnate Word!
