This Catholic devotional site uses the same three verbs here that some of our people use in prayer:
These words from the Prophet Isaiah speak of the care God has for his people, watching over them at every moment, to guard them, guide them, protect them.
Maybe it’s a coincidence. If not, where’s the source for this usage? That would be fascinating to know.
Here’s one for you: A course on “Centering Prayer as Purification, Illumination, Union.”
“we will focus on how the practice of Centering Prayer serves as a doorway into a process that involves a downward movement into one’s inmost being to what’s blocking the free flow of grace and a rising movement of the influence of the Divine Indwelling within, which awakens an awareness of the immense love and goodness that is at the heart of all creation. Ultimately, this results in the transformation of our entire being.”
Does anybody understand this?! (It’s too deep for me.) And only for $79.95!
