At Home with Jesus: Contemplation and Scripture

At Home with Jesus: Contemplation and Scripture

by Tom O'Hara, Tom S.J. O'Hara
     
 

Contemplation is a gift to us all. We see it in a baby's fascination with its toes, in a child absorbed in playing in the sand, in our own gazing upon a magnificent sunset. Contemplation is 'being with' sitting in the presence of another. And contemplative prayer is, in the words of Teresa of Avila, 'nothing else than a close sharing between friends'. This book
