CHRISTIAN MEDITATION 102:
Journey and Fruits of Christian Meditation
“The way of pure prayer is a journey centred in Christ.” Laurence Freeman
“We should not judge the value of our meditation by “how we feel.”
A hard and apparently fruitless meditation may in fact be much more valuable than one that is easy, happy, enlightened and apparently a big success.” Thomas Merton
We will explore the questions:
• How can we best understand this journey?
• What are the stages of the journey?
• What happens in the process of Meditation?
Presenter CATHRYN WILES-PICKARD rsm
