Prayer that employs discursive reflection, enabling one to grow in sanctity. Meditation is the connecting of mind, heart, and soul in communicating with God and is a response to His invitation to offer oneself totally to Him. It uses images about God and events from the life of Jesus for meditational material. Contemplation is the highest level of meditation.
