There’s a place there in the depth of prayer, in dedicating yourself to the love of Christ, love, Jesus Christ – whatever word you choose – it takes you to another place that is very special. And sometimes I do not practice this thing but there are times that I sit down and give it that deep, deep thought. It truly, truly really works. I have seen my wife get an immense amount of peace and quiet and tranquility and a very deep love of God because of that connection through Contemplative Outreach. This group of people – they’re just special. They’re just special.


Hay un lugar allí, en lo profundo de la oración, al dedicarnos al amor de Cristo, al amor, a Jesucristo – no importa cómo lo llamemos – que nos lleva a otro lugar, muy especial. Y a veces yo no practico, pero hay otras veces en las que me siento y entro en ese pensamiento tan, tan profundo. Realmente, verdaderamente, funciona. He visto a mis esposa recibir una gran paz y quietud y tranquilidad y un muy profundo amor a Dios gracias a esa conexión a través del ContemplativeOutreach. Ese grupo de gente… son especiales. Simplemente, son especiales.
