Join Dan Burke and Melissa Elson as they reflect on the meditations of Fr. Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalen on the transition from meditation to contemplation. 

Topics/Questions Covered in the Show:

  • We must have an understanding of the transition from meditation to contemplation in order to cooperate with God. 
  • How can someone advance in the spiritual life if they have trouble meditating?
  • Meditating is both thinking about Scripture and entering into the readings through discursive and affective meditation.
  • Vocal prayer done well can lead us to deeper meditation.
  • Is everyone called to the contemplative life?
  • Is it possible for God to withhold a soul from contemplation and keep them in the meditative stage of prayer?
  • You must become aware of the depths of your sin and become reliant on Jesus to purify you.
  • When you are unable to meditate on Scripture, do you keep reading or are there tricks to meditation?
  • What are some of the common experiences when someone is transitioning from meditation to contemplation?
