Knowing Your Sins; Meditating More Effectively

Questions on Knowing Your Sins and How to Meditate More Effectively

DivineIntimacyRadioWithDan&MelissaHow can we become more aware of our sins? How does our disposition help us to meditate more effectively? Dan and Melissa answer these questions as they reflect on the book Finding God Through Meditation by St Peter of Alcántara.

 

 

Topics/Questions covered in the show:

  • Why do I find myself unaware of how I've offended God, even though I know I am a sinner?
  • How can I overcome the lack of awareness of sin?
  • How does meditation differ from contemplation in Catholic tradition?
  • According to St Peter of Alcántara, how does spiritual reading fit into the “way of meditation”?
  • What should you do when you feel your heart moved during spiritual reading?
  • What is meant by the “proper disposition” for prayer or meditation?
  • Why does our disposition for prayer matter?
