How can I go deeper in prayer?
In this episode, Fr. Pier Giorgio Pacelli, OCD, joins Jessica to talk about the 4 Waters of Prayer that St. Theresa of Avila writes about in her autobiography. Jess and Fr. Pier Giorgio discuss:
- St. Theresa’s analogy of watering a garden and the 4 “waters” of prayer she describes
- How God moves a soul from active to more passive prayer
- The prayer of recollection
- How a soul can cooperate with God to receive contemplative prayer
F. Pier Giorgio Pacelli, OCD, is a Discalced Carmelite Friar and the Managing Editor of the Institute of Carmelite Studies Publications. He currently studies Language, Literature, and Translation at UW-Milwaukee.
