I had for a long time been interested in meditation, though never done a lot about it, partly because I’m a reflective kind of person. I noticed, some years ago now, an article in the WECOM paper about a visit from Fr Laurence and a talk he was giving about Christian Meditation. I recall a photo of his beaming face and thought, there is a happy man! I went to the talk and knew it was the way forward for me, the word of God within.
I have attended occasional meditation gatherings and persevered for quite some time now, not as part of a group, just a solitary effort. I would say a somewhat faltering effort at that. But I know I will continue because in the word attributed to St Peter, ” Lord where would I turn, you alone have the words of everlasting life.”
