Centering Prayer is the method that I use. It provides a method so that a person can become aware of attitudes, feelings, and what they are actually doing – not just the outer appearances – but the full motivations. I think that knowing God loves me cures a whole lot of deficits in my life and, ultimately, they don’t matter because the love of God sustains me. 


La Oración Centrante es el método que uso. Ofrece un método por el que la persona puede hacerse consciente de sus actitudes, sentimientos, y de lo que de hecho está haciendo – no solamente las apariencias externas – sino las verdaderas motivaciones. Creo que saber que Dios me ama sana muchos déficits en mi vida, y en última instancia estos no son importantes porque el amor de Dios me sostiene.
