Discover the great sea of the silence of God and find yourself plunged into his infinite love.
In language poetic and meditative yet direct and simple, the author invites us to share her own pilgrimage into God's silence. Pilgrimage lasts as long as one's life, and involves purification, union with God, work and suffering, culminating in the almost miraculous experience of the divine silence. Much of Molchanie is in the way of allegory, full of visions and imagination--it is an allegorical pilgrimage.
Catherine distinguishes between silence and solitude, insisting that silence doesn't need solitude. One can remain in the silence of God and leave the door of the heart unlatched to be at the disposal of those in need.
"God offers us many silences--the silence of babyhood, the silence of childhood, the silence of youth and maturity, and finally the silence of old age."

Catherine de Hueck Doherty used her heritage as a Russian Christian as a matrix for responding to the needs of Christian life and work in the modern world. Her own personal pilgrimage led her to be "poor with the poor Christ" in the slums of Toronto and in Harlem; and later to the establishing of the world-wide Madonna House Apostolate. A dedicated wife and mother, Catherine was also a prolific writer of hundreds of articles, a best-selling author of dozens of books, a renowned national speaker, and a pioneer of social justice. Catherine Doherty's cause for canonization as a saint is now under consideration by the Catholic Church.Review:
This is a book for all, but especially for very busy people. No special learning is required. If one can read the Gospel, one can read Molchanie. Those who are weary and a bit battered by life, its pressures and tumult will find here refreshment and joy. --St. Anthony Messenger
Catherine Doherty writes of the silence of God with objectivity: 'An immensity', entrance into which one is free to accept or reject. Her book is also deeply personal, describing a personal journey... This is no silence of introspective withdrawal, but of all-embracing Christan evangelism... Wherever you are, or whatever work you are doing, 'You can still be immersed in the silence of God.' --Seek Magazine
