Today’s Question: What is meditation?

Famous Catholic Mystic, Saint Teresa of Avila

Today’s Question: What is meditation?

Answer: It’s a lot like mental masturbation … but, with God alone,
as the ultimate object of pure love and devotion.

Intimate, personal communion with God
is widely reported to be even better than sex.

A good number of Catholic mystics are known to have perfected their meditation (prayer) techniques to such an extent that they subsequently lost all interest in sex, as well as most other worldly things, with God (eventually) becoming all in all, for them; something that should be worth noting, for a number of very good reasons, during these strange times.
