Promoting a Trinitarian vision of deification and contemplative prayer

Exerpts from two new publications from Fr. Krill, Gelassenheit: Day-By-Day with Meister Eckhart, and, Mushin: Meditations on the Mystery of Mindfulness 

September 5

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.

Henri Nouwen


In relationships, silence often speaks louder than words. Presence makes us persons of Presence and God’s gift to the world.


Grant us a quiet acceptance of the unevenness of life, O God. Instruct us in Presence so we can defuse the drama and realize the Power of Now.
