Title: CLIMATE OF MONASTIC PRAYER, THE
"The most important need in the Christian world today is this inner truth nourished by this spirit of contemplation: the praise and love of God, the longing for the coming of Christ, the thirst for the manifestation of God's glory, his truth, his justice, his kingdom in the world. These are all characteristically "contemplative" and eschatological aspirations of the Christian heart, and they are the very essence of monastic prayer." - Thomas Merton.
