    Jesuit Pastoral Minister Rev. Joe McCloskey discusses prayer as meditation.

    I am Joseph McCloskey, I can't really tell you too much about myself without mentioning that the most interesting thing that I did in life, was, I was a peace worker truck driver and to pray by the work that I was doing became a very serious dimension my relationship to God. This section is all about meditation and to go into depths of meditation and at the same time to make the connection between the meditation and it's five p's which is the mnemonic for remembering the five dimensions of any good healthy prayer but the big P obviously to be a prayer and each of these little p's are the different dimension of what I would call contemplated mystical experience of God touching your life by virtue of the son, Jesus Christ.
