centering prayer

Centering Prayer Meditation
Tuesdays at 9 a.m. in Upper Room of Narthex/Chapel Entry

Be still and know that I am God.  Psalm 46:10

“Centering prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to deepen that relationship. It requires from us only the intention to grow closer to God and its practice.  Centering Prayer is a movement of Divine Love designed to renew the Christian contemplative tradition.  It consists of consenting to the call of the Holy Spirit to consent to God's presence and action within.  As the inner room begins to expand its walls beyond the twice-daily practice of Centering Prayer, the Holy Spirit takes over our life more and more, and we begin to accept ourselves just as we are, God as God is, and all reality as it is.  It is based on the format for the profound form of prayer that Jesus suggests in Matthew 6:6:  If you want to pray, enter your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.

"Centering Prayer is a receptive method of Christian silent prayer which deepens our relationship with God.   In Centering Prayer, we are moving into the secret room and moving to the spiritual level of awareness - we move from conversation with God to communion with God.  Silence is God's first language. Everything else is a poor translation."

Fr. Thomas Keating, spiritual guide and one of the principal architects and teachers of the Christian contemplative prayer movement.

"El centro del alma es Dios"... "The center of the soul is God."   St. John of the Cross
