The silence of God.

"There was silence in heaven..." Revelation 8:1
The Holy Father said today that Mother Teresa suffered the "silence of God". He explained that some souls experience the silence of God in order to better understand the dilemma faced by unbelievers. The linked article also mentions the Holy Father's statement at Auschwitz when he said the holocaust was a time when God was silent.
"All believers know about the silence of God," he said in unprepared remarks. "Even Mother Teresa, with all her charity and force of faith, suffered from the silence of God," he said. - Reuters
