Time for stillness, for silence, for interiority


(…) every single one of us needs time every day for stillness, for silence, for interiority, for contemplation. And all the other forms of prayer that we have, which are a wonderful enrichment to our lives, are not compromised by this of course. Meditation doesn’t replace other forms of prayer because, if you meditate you know that already, it gives you new meaning and life and richness to the scriptures, to the mass, to the sacraments, to everything that you have learnt. Meditation doesn’t replace the other forms of prayer; quite the reverse. But, we do need time every day where we can sit in this contemplative stillness and silence.
