Thomas Merton: The Prayer of the Heart

by Courtney Shapiro

The prayer of the heart introduces us into deep interior silence so that we learn to experience its power. For that reason the prayer of the heart has to be always very simple, confined to the simplest of acts and often making use of no words and no thoughts at all.–Thomas Merton

Contemplative Prayer by Thomas Merton, (Image Books, 1996, p 42).
