Father Jarrett expounds on the characteristics and the meaning of contemplation as one method of prayer in seeking God. The focus of meditating on an aspect of divine truth in prayer engages both the heart and mind and is considered among one of the highest forms of prayer. While acknowledging the abandonment of secular life for a contemplative life is not for all, Father Jarrett maintains all can and should incorporate contemplative prayer in their life as a means for a fuller understanding of the Christian life.
