When the Silent Speak

by Sacred Monastery of Saint John the Forerunner, Mesa Potamos, Cyprus

Sometimes family life can present challenges. When the Silent Speak tells the compelling yet uplifting story of a tight-knit group of teenagers, each of whom is struggling with life and the people around them: Eirini battles for independence from her overprotective mother. Paraschos, also known as “Squirrel,” is wounded by the fighting of his parents. Anastasis is embarrassed by his step-brother and step-sister. And Giannis, following the death of his beloved father, has not spoken a single word for seven years.

Determined to find answers to their problems, the four friends embark on a pilgrimage to a mountaintop monastery—and commence a journey filled with miracles and wonder. Among other things, the teens encounter a mysterious deer and meet a grace-filled monk, Fr. Philaretos, who seemingly can read people’s thoughts and communicate with wild animals. Set in modern-day Greece, When the Silent Speak is an exciting tale in which the complexities of contemporary life meet the deep beauty and profound wisdom of Orthodox teaching.
