Check out the article “Silence, Contemplation, & Discernment” by Fr. Dominic Foster, TOR available here.

While reading, consider the following questions and feel free to discuss them with your mentor or formation companion:

  • Do you make time for silence in your life?
  • What do you think about “performance-based spirituality”? What do you think this means? Do you think this has affected your own prayer life? If so, do you think you should change it?
  • What stands out most to you from the article? How do you think this point could apply to your life?
