Letting God impact!

I am reading a book on St. John of the Cross called Impact of God by Iain Matthew. It is absolutely brilliant and I heartily recommend it to anyone who wishes to learn about St. John of the Cross' teachings on prayer. It has made me realise that what we need in the Church is contemplatives. Not just in the monasteries (which, of course, is crucial) but in the world. Basically put Impact of God tells us that St. John of the Cross teaches that mystical prayer is for all. God wishes to give that freely given gift. We just have to open our nothingness up (nada) and God will fill it. Let God have an impact in His Holy Temples, our sinful souls!
God bless
