Christian Models of Contemplation and Meditation

Father William Meninger


The journey to union with God is the journey to contemplation. Each mystic has his or her own way on a journey they all have in common. Christian contemplative meditation has been practiced for 2000 years, and guided by the Holy Spirit, its practitioners have become the cutting edge in the evolution of the reality of the Risen Christ in the world. From Origin to Augustine to Aquinas to John of the Cross to Thomas Merton, great mystics have left us in their writings the rich fruits of their experiences of union with God. We can follow them and even add our own wisdom to their spiritual pathway. Discover the path of Christian contemplative meditation and learn how to add your own wisdom to the spiritual guidance the great mystics left us.
