“This is my favorite introduction to prayer because Father took a very difficult problem…which is how do we commune with God…and with great love and simple language instructs us how we can… connect to our God. And in doing this, grow in Faith, Hope and Love from His Holy Spirit. He covers all the aspects of different types of prayer and contemplation in a way that is easy to understand and in a way that makes you inspired to pray more and more.” (M. Barker – Amazon Review)
It is indispensable for each of us to acknowledge (at least intellectually) the fundamental basis for Christian contemplation, namely, the unconditional Love of God. There can be nothing more important than contemplating, affirming, appropriating, and living in this Unconditional Love. This is the purpose of contemplation; indeed, the purpose of the spiritual life itself.
