WHAT IS CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER?

 “Contemplative prayer is the simplest expression of the mystery of prayer.

It is a gift, a grace; it can be accepted only in humility and poverty.

Contemplative prayer is a covenant relationship established by God within our hearts. 

Contemplative prayer is a communion in which the Holy Trinity conforms man, the image of God, ‘to his likeness.’"
