Meditations are moments of silent prayer aided by the preaching of a priest. Saint Josemaria, the founder of Opus Dei, said:
“You write: 'To pray is to talk with God. But about what?' About what? About Him, about yourself: joys, sorrows, successes and failures, noble ambitions, daily worries, weaknesses! And acts of thanksgiving and petitions: and Love and reparation. In a word: to get to know him and to get to know yourself: 'to get acquainted!'” (The Way, 91).
