The Second Sunday of Lent is known as "Blessed Silence Sunday" at St. Simeon Skete. In the readings for tomorrow it says "But He answered not a word" (Matthew 15:23).
"Invoke the Name of God, that's all we can do on our side until God responds and leaves us wondering in silence. But that moment of silence changes all sounds. After a certain time, we were embellished by misery and certitude grew."
- Seraphim (concerning our time in Egypt).
