Forum: Meditative Prayer
Sunday, February 25, 2018, 10:15 AM - 11:05 AM
Silence. Stillness. Simplicity. These are three wonderful gifts at the root of contemplative prayer to give yourself during the Lenten season. Contemplative prayer has always been part of our Christian journey. It is the process by which we attempt to directly tune into being loved by God. It is our openness to the God who loves us into being and who calls us daily to grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ. In one of the more “contemporary” forms of contemplative prayer, Christian meditation as passed along by Fr. John Main, OSB, the repetition of a sacred word, or mantra, serves as our yes to being the beloved. Come and journey deeper into being the beloved this Lenten season with Tony Mazurkiewicz, director of the John Main Center for Meditation and Inter-Religious Dialogue at Georgetown University. He has a B.A. in History from Yale University and an M.Div. from the Washington Theological Union.
