Mirror meditation

In the Letter of James, we are told that the Scriptures are like a mirror in which we can see ourselves. In this type of meditation we take a piece of Scripture, hold it before us and consider what echoes within our heart. These echoes help us to see who we are before God and how we are loved.

What usually echoes in us are situations that we are dealing with in our lives. When something strikes us, we do not actively try to solve the situation or work it through. Rather we sit holding it in God's love. The point of such a meditation is to make space within the situation for God's love to be. In 'sitting with' such a situation, painful or sad, we come to recognise the love of God that is at work on our lives.

The suggestions for Mirror reflections can also be used for Exercise reflections but wouldn't be advised for Driving Prayer as often some degree of emotion or distraction might rise in such prayer.

This Sunday's Mirror Meditation

Rest in the love of your God.

A theme of this Sunday’s Gospel is belief. When we believe in another person, and that belief is accepted, it gives hope and the possibility of a richer life. When we believe in God, that gives us hope and a richer life. When you are resting in the love of God, ponder on what hope and richness of life, believing in God gives you. How does it transform your attitudes, your actions, your relationships? Appreciate the richness that has been given to you.

Rest in the love of your God.
