Meditation is a very special method of praying. Prayer is bringing your mind, soul and spirit to God’s presence, to God Almighty himself. In a regular prayer, you use words to articulate your thoughts (out loud or silently). But when you meditate, instead of using your voice, you use your imagination – thoughts inside your mind.
What is Catholic Meditation?
"Meditation" in the Roman Catholic Traditions is a completely different experience from the concepts of eastern religions, where "meditation" involves not thinking about things and exercises emptiness of the mind. Catholic (or Christian) meditation is simply the opposite: it is a very active mental task, a kind of prayer where we are trying to reach the depth of God’s message to us.
Our goals in meditation are:
- experiencing deep presence of God,
- gaining understanding of God and His call for you,
- gaining better understanding of God’s truths,
- development of our spiritual life,
- growth of our Faith,
- to bring full divine peace to our life.
Reward of Meditation
Catholic Meditation if done properly and based on right subjects may bring amazing results to your life. Your spiritual life can skyrocket, your understanding of God himself can quickly grow, and your prayers finally will be answered! Meditation is very effective in fighting depression, fear, and uncertainty in our lives. It brings God’s order and develops trust in God. It helps us greatly to receive God’s help and advice. It helps us also to receive answers for our prayers.
