Peace and Quietude

Long ago, in the fifteenth century,  a German monk, Thomas á Kempis, wrote, "if we would cut off all vain worrying, thinking only of  things that are profitable to the soul, and placing our hope in God, what great peace and quietness we would then possess."  

In our world today, the quantity and the quality of noise has changed, but the path to relief is the same á Kempis wrote long ago. The challenge--and the advice--never changes.
