Union of the Prayer of the Senses
The Union of the Prayer of the Senses CD, is one of fifteen conferences given by Fr. Santan Pinto, SOLT at the Nine Day Prayer in Your Life Retreat in Honey Grove, TX October 2002.
This conference teaches how the senses play an important part in advancing to union with God. The senses can either hinder this union or be the stepstool to getting to the unitive stage of the spiritual life. This teaching gives examples of how to “ train your senses to appreciate the things of God.”
Father’s words: “In the senses God gives us a gift of this union with God. See things in God’s beauty. See His goodness in things around me. Is that unitive experience? Yes. That I see things, I notice things. And something begins to happen and I don’t even understand. My senses are usually in disarray and confused and not focused on anything. My hearing, my touch, my senses, my sight, my taste…and all of a sudden they seem to be captivated.”
