Christian Meditation
"Be still, and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10)

Fr. John Main, O.S.B.

"In the Christian tradition, the experience of prayer, the experience of meditation, is of unity, of oneness.
It is an experience that changes the whole of our perception of reality.
We see reality as a whole, unified by the basic energy of the cosmos, which is the energy of love.
This is the message of the truth that sets us free."
John Main O.S.B.,
Moment of Christ, p. 41.
