Formation is work on self-growth. Development to be in shape.
For starters, we suggest the contemplations prepared for this year’s Extreme Way of the Cross. You can download them here.
How to pray?
You should plan 15-30 minutes for yourself in silence and solitude every day. If everyone is home, you can invite them to meditate with you.
You should start with the video and then meditate the text. When meditating, it is important to:
Seek inspiring content
They sometimes show a different point of view and may be irritating. This is intentional. God says: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord /Isaiah 55:8/.
See and understand more
It is important to know and understand more after mediation than before it.
Work with a notebook
You can use a notebook in your meditation to write down insightful thoughts or sentences. This helps you get to the next stage…
When you have the key content, you need to start looking for how it refers to your own life.
Consider areas of your own life
You can use the notebook to write down the areas in your life, where you see references. These can be specific relations, events, or situations.
Go into yourself
When we have inspiration and related areas, we need to seek ways to improve. This means respect and implementation of the discovered rules.
Make strong decisions
Successful meditation involves clear and concrete decisions, which will help you improve.
Your meditation should start and end in silence filled with awareness of the presence of God.
