Excerpt from Pillars Album by our Mother Foundress


“I am the Good Shepherd, and I know mine and mine know Me” (Jn 10:14)


We want to try to get into the silence quickly as we can because I believe God has a lot on His mind and heart to share with us. This is really what contemplation is all about. Contemplation is heart language, and if it was ever needed in the Church, it is needed now. We live in such a scientific world. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but we have to connect with the heart again. There has to be that constant marriage between the mind and heart.


Contemplative prayer is a gift. But then everything is gift! The saints tell us over and over that everything is gift! One of the reasons that I believe God is giving us this gift, everything is grace in such plenitude and with such urgency is because it has to do with relationships. I asked Him, “Is there one word that You really want spoken tonight in this particular talk? If so, what is it?” He said, “Union” that’s what He is interested in because He is love. John the contemplative said, “God is Love” (1 Jn 4:8). Of all the ways he could describe God, St John summed it up in those three little words, “God is Love”. No wonder union is on His mind! No wonder relationship is the very heart and core of His being and what He wants for all of us.


St Augustine said, “Our hearts are ever restless till they find rest in Thee” (The Confessions, Book 1, 1-3). “Rest” is a very contemplative term. When we are at home with God, when we are being loved and are experiencing His presence. There isn’t anything more to say. We rest because we are contented. We are satisfied. Love is touching us, we are touching Love, and our hearts are resting in His.


“Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm...” (Song of Songs 8:6)
