The gentle Voice of God speaks in the 21st century to a soul aspiring to Carmel, even as this Voice of sheer silence was heard by Elijah. This meeting with the Lord, however brief and almost imperceptible, increases the seeker’s desire for a deeper love relationship with Christ, and her zeal to help draw countless others closer to Him.
