The soul that waits on God,
patiently and unhurriedly,
will eventually be filled
with the realization he or she
is infinitely loved.

The quest for God is a journey,
a pilgrimage to the depths of the soul,
the very seat of stillness.

The art of contemplating divine truths
grows out of the art of remaining still.

The quest requires a listening heart,
an ear quickened to the silent voice of God,
and vigilant spirit actively waiting and watching.

To be a contemplative is
to be receptive to the divine Word.

Prayer is being present.

Transformation is a daily event.

Every moment is a moment of grace –
if my eyes and heart are open.

Contemplation requires
tranquility and patience.

Humility is the heart of Christianity,
and the gateway to prayer.

Without prayer, God dies in our hearts.
