Have you ever known someone who took a vow of silence--and kept it?
Let’s say for thirty days or more.
I’m not talking about “the silent treatment”—silence as a social weapon—or about someone who lacks the power of speech. I’m speaking of something more like a monastic vow of silence taken for spiritual reasons and kept for some significant length of time, perhaps even for a lifetime.
And someone you know or knew personally.
Or perhaps yourself?
