Marianist Moment

The Province of Meribah visited Blessed Chaminade's Chapel of the Madeleine
while we traveled to World Youth Day 2012.
In my Novitiate, we were taught to observe Silence of Words at all times. When I told that to some of my students in school, they were shocked, even dismayed. "How were you able to be silent all of the time?" they asked. I explained that we are instructed as follows: speak when only you mean to, and mean to only when necessary. In other words, "Control of speaking."

I wonder what this says about this generation.
