The Easter pastoral letter that the Archbishop of Florence addresses “to believers and non-believers... to men and women who do not shirk the great questions that trouble the heart and mind” is an invitation to ponder the meaning of silence and the Word, and their place in our lives and our spirit in an age in which “the surfeit of words and sounds around us dismays and oppresses us”. As Christian literature teaches us, it is only “in silence and tranquillity that the devout soul can find the path to improvement and grasp the meaning of the Sacred Scriptures”. This long letter, divided into six chapters inspired by six biblical verses, is illustrated with important works of Florentine art.
