Prayer in Contemplation

Pope Francis teaching "Prayer in contemplation.":
"Read a page of the Gospel every day, for “10, 15 minutes and no more”, keep your “eyes fixed on Jesus” in order to imagine yourself “in the scene and to speak with Jesus” about what comes from the heart. These are thecharacteristics of “prayer in contemplation”, a true source of hope for our life."
Pope Francis offered this recommendation during Mass at Santa Marta onTuesday morning, 3rd of February.

The Pope really wants everyone to read the Gospels, pray over them, imagine you are there with Jesus and speak to Him as one friend to another. This kind of prayer is Jesuit contemplation. You put yourself into the Gospel scene.
