The quest for God is a journey, a pilgrimage to the depths of the soul, the very seat of stillness. The soul that waits on God, patiently and unhurriedly, will eventually be filled with the realization he or she is infinitely loved. The quest requires a listening heart, an ear quickened to the silent voice of God, and a vigilant spirit actively waiting and watching. The art of contemplating divine truths grows out of the art of remaining still. Contemplation requires tranquility and patience. Every moment is a moment of grace – if my eyes and heart are open. Prayer is being present. Transformation is a daily event. To be a contemplative is to be humbly receptive to the divine Word. Humility is the heart of Christianity, and the gateway to prayer. Without prayer, God dies in our hearts.
