"To encounter the Fatherly love of God, we must learn to pray in a childlike way using the Lectio Divina and Ignatian contemplation. We must pray in a simple way by immersing and absorbing the Word of God until a certain phrase or word receives our attention. As we meditate on the Word of God, chew on it, and engage in a dialogue with the Lord. The end result is that we begin to hear God speaking personally to our hearts. The other way of entering into the heart of God is through the method taught by St Ignatius, which is to pray the scriptures using fantasy, that is, putting ourselves in the characters of the Bible as we enter into their feelings, thoughts and mind of each character. In this way, we make the gospel scenes come alive."
