Sara Maitland on silence
Sara Maitland, author of A Book of Silence, comments "The more time you have for silence the more interesting the prayer gets." She now lives in prayerful isolation in a cottage on the Scottish moors. Petitionary prayer is one of the duties of people who live alone, she says, since it prevents self-obsession.
