Contemplative prayer is

"the simplest expression
of the mystery of prayer."

"It is a gift,
a grace;
it can be accepted
only in humility
and poverty.

"Contemplative prayer is
a covenant relationship
established by God within our hearts.

"Contemplative prayer is
a communion
in which the Holy Trinity
conforms man, the image of God,
"to his likeness."
Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 2713
