These talks explain how modern people can ‘pray without ceasing’. In the monastic tradition, the monk’s goal was to come to continuous prayer, and their way to this state was the practice of oratio pura (pure prayer) or imageless prayer, which cultivated in them purity of heart or singleness of purpose. John Main OSB drew from this tradition of imageless prayer to teach Christian meditation, a way of prayer that integrates our two centres of intelligence, the head and the heart, and so enables continuous prayer where work and prayer are not separate but flow one from the other. This is the state of continuous prayer that the monk in us yearns for.
These talks were given at Sant’Anselmo, Rome, in 2015.
