  5. 5.  People often do not realize that their anguish is in the spirit, and that the death of the body will not eliminate their suffering, because the spirit, like God, is infinite...
  6. 6. “Our hearts were made for Thee, O Lord, and they will be restless until they rest in Thee...” – St. Augustine
  7. 7. “Behold, I stand at the door and knock.” (Rv. 3:20)
  8. 8. “When you pray, go to your private room and, when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in that secret place.” (Mt. 6:6) “Make your home in Me as I make Mine in you.” (Jn. 15:4)
  9. 9. “Contemplative prayer in my opinion is nothing else than a close sharing between friends; it means taking time frequently to be alone with Him whom we know loves us...” - St. Teresa of Jesus (of Avila)
  10. 10. Contemplative prayer seeks Him “whom my soul loves.”
  11. 11. Contemplative prayer is the prayer of the child of God, of the forgiven sinner who agrees to welcome the love by which he is loved and who wants to respond to it by loving even more.
  12. 12. “I understand that love comprised all vocations, that love was everything, that it embraced all times and places...in a word, that it was eternal! Then in the excess of my delirious joy, I cried out: O Jesus, my Love...my vocation, at last I found it...MY VOCATION IS LOVE!” - St. Therese of Liseux
  13. 13. Contemplation is gaze of faith, fixed on Jesus. “I look at Him and He looks at me..”
  14. 14. Contemplative prayer is silence, the “symbol of the world to come” or “silent love.”
  15. 15. Friends and acquaintances often engage in “small talk” but when two people have a deep love for each other, it is enough to just be together in silence, sensing the other’s presence. There is no need for words because there are no words.

  20. 20. Contemplative prayer is hearing the Word of God.
  21. 21. Contemplative prayer is a union with the prayer of Christ insofar as it makes us participate in His mystery.
  22. 22. Contemplative prayer is the simplest expression of the mystery of prayer. It is a gift, a grace; it can only be accepted only in humility and poverty. Contemplative prayer is a communion in which the Holy Trinity conforms man, the image of God, “to his likeness.”
  23. 23. Contemplative prayer is a communion of love, bearing Life for the multitude, to the extent that it consents to abide in the night of faith.
  24. 24. The Holy Rosary
  25. 25. The Lectio Divina Listening to the texts of the Bible as if one were in conversation with God and God were suggesting the topics for discussion.

  27. 27. It is a preparation for contemplation by reducing the obstacles caused by the hyperactivity of our minds and our lives.
  28. 28. 1. Choose a sacred word as the symbol of your intention to consent to God’s presence and action within. 2. Sitting comfortably and with eyes closed, settle briefly and silently introduce the sacred word as the symbol of your consent to God’s presence and action within.
  29. 29. 3. When you become aware of your thoughts, return ever-so- gently to the sacred word. 4. At the end of the prayer period, remain in silence with eyes closed for a couple of minutes.
  30. 30. “That is why I am going to lure her. I will allure her. I will lead her into the desert and speak to her heart...I will make a covenant. I will espouse you to Me forever. I will espouse you in love and mercy. I will espouse you in fidelity and you shall know (experience) the Lord.” (Ho. 2:16)
