Becoming Perceptive

“…simply paying attention…”

“I think one of the best things we can do, I think, in developing our own life of prayer is practicing simply paying attention. Actually look and consider and spend time looking at something in creation, looking at it and marveling at it, wondering at it, and allowing its deep mystery to come to you and change you and reveal something of a mystery of God the Creator. I think this is a wonderful way of deepening our relationship with God.”

– Br. Geoffrey Tristram, “Pick something in God’s creation to consider today…”, Growing a Rule of Life, March 10, 2019 Society of Saint John the Evangelist
