WHEN INTIMACY is rooted in solitude, you can become persons to each other—persons in the sense of [the Latin] personare, which means sounding through. Then intimacy allows us to sound through a truth wider than we can grasp, a peace deeper than we can fathom, a love greater than we can contain.
—Henri J.M. Nouwen, The Wondrous Mystery: An Advent Reader (Upper Room Books, 2019)
“But whenever you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.”
—Matthew 6:6 (NRSV)
