Catholic meditation is not a regular prayer. While a prayer is commonly said out loud to bring your mind, soul, and spirit to God, the meditation uses the “inside voice”, your imagination, the thoughts inside your mind.

The traditional church is a great place to socialize and fellowship with people. This is a part of life. You can grow and learn here through the experiences it offers.

In other words, you must practice meditation. Following Jesus is not about proclaiming a new set of beliefs. That’s just religion. Following Christ is about laying down your ego to experience union with God. Another expression for this would be laying down your will for His. Because let’s face it! When you remove YOU from the picture, you’ll soon realize that God is what’s left.

You may wish to keep your eyes closed, because it helps to focus on what’s happening inside your body.
