In his beautiful teaching on prayer Pope Emeritus Benedict constantly reminded us that to see that face, to behold the gaze of His love, one must encounter Him. In prayer one comes to contemplate that beauty and be transformed by the encounter. That encounter is itself prayer. Now, Benedict spends his days immersed in prayer, beholding the face of the Lord, praying for the whole Church, and for the world. He speaks to the Lord and, yes, the Lord speaks to him.
