The Liturgy Committee of the Department for Christian Life and Worship has produced a document The Place of Silence which explores how silence is an integral part of any liturgical action. It looks, in particular, at the celebration of Mass and how silence is expected in different ways.
It is likely to be especially helpful to those with responsibility with preparing the Liturgy for celebration, and for those who work with readers and other ministers of the word.
The fruit of silence is prayer.
The fruit of prayer is faith.
The fruit of faith is love.
The fruit of love is service.
The fruit of service is peace.
St Teresa of Calcutta
