Contemplative Prayer and Meditation

The only one who can teach me to find God is God Himself, alone.

Thomas Merton

There is an approach to living that the Spirit has invited people to over the centuries, one in which our awareness of (and responsiveness to) God’s presence is deepened in a more moment-to-moment way. This is the contemplative life and it does NOT require that you move to the desert and live like a monk. Rather, the invitation is to be fully present in this moment, wherever you are, and discover the Holy One there.
