Parallel Texts from Pope Francis and Br. Charles - Contemplation-part3

Pope Francis: "....being contemplative does not depend on the eyes, but on the heart. And here prayer enters into play as an act of faith and love, as the "breath" of our relationship with God."

Br. Charles: "Prayer is simply converse with God. So it should be something absolutely natural. absolutely true, the expression of what is deepest in your heart."
