Contemplative Prayer

Contemplative Prayer is a process of interior transformation, a conversation initiated by God and leading, if we consent, to Divine Union.  In silence we come to know and live from the Divine Mystery within us. The fruit of contemplative prayer is a growing awareness of God as the Source and Center of all.

Centering Prayer prepares us to receive the gift of God’s presence. It consists of responding to the Spirit of Christ by consenting to God’s presence and action within. Centering Prayer does not demand anything of us. It does not ask anything of God. It is a process of simply resting in the love of God, and being in relationship with Him. Centering Prayer is drawn from ancient prayer practices of the Christian contemplative heritage, notably the Fathers and Mothers of the Desert, praying Scripture through Lectio Divina, the 14th Century anonymous book The Cloud of Unknowing, and the writings of St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Avila.

“When you want to pray, go to your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.” (MT 6:6)

ABOUT ST PAUL CATHOLIC CHURCH

Our St. Paul logo was designed by fellow parishioner Lori Brechtel, a graphic designer. Lori put great thought and detail into its design. She began by seeking out a symbol of our church that would be readily identifiable to all of our members - the circular, quartered round window on our building.

The yellow, starbust portion represents the light of Christ that blinded Paul, and that light which we show to each other among our congregation, and others. it is "bursting" from the confines of our own church and radiating into the world.
