Thoughts on Prayer: Reflection for SPIRIT October 27

centeringprayerWhat helps you pray? Do you practice centering prayer?

For more inspiration and reflection, read two past reflections on prayer by Claire Bischoff: Lenten Prayer Practices and Prayer Through Life, or read the prayer of the day.

Contemplative prayer is the simple expression of the mystery of prayer. It is a gaze of faith fixed on Jesus, an attentiveness to the Word of God, a silent love. It achieves real union with the prayer of Christ to the extent that it makes us share in his mystery.
Catechism of the Catholic Church #2724, also 2709-2719
