Do not be afraid … Behold, your King.  – Jn 12:15

Reflection. To contemplate is simply to enjoy God.  It is not an intellectual process.  It is not thinking about God.  You simply sense His loving Presence filling you, and you love Him in return.  Remember, your union with God depends more on His love for you, than on your love for Him.  Contemplative prayer is being in love with God.  To love God is to enjoy Him.

Prayer. Almighty Father, Holy One, Lord of Lords, I love You.  Help me to love You more and more.  Let me bathe in the splendor of Your warmth.
