Centering Prayer

is a receptive method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, prayer in which we experience God's presence within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than consciousness itself. This method of prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship. Centering Prayer is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer. Rather, it adds depth of meaning to all prayer and facilitates the movement from more active modes of prayer - verbal, mental or affective prayer - into a receptive prayer of resting in God. Centering Prayer emphasizes prayer as a personal relationship with God and as a movement beyond conversation with Christ to communion with Christ.

The Mission of the Crown of Mary's Luminous Light of the Eucharist (CMLLE):

To encourage one another to a deeper prayer life.

  • to nurture one's faith with the resources, articles and practices available in a variety of ways.
  • to promote Centering Prayer, a receptive method of Silent Prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer (see more about Centering Prayer below.)
  • to share and promote devotion to our Lady, our Blessed Mother.

    The Blessed Virgin Mary,  our Mother of us all, walks with us in our faith journey.  If we ask and let her, she leads us to her Son Jesus.

  • In this journey we follow the models of: Mary's Fiat; St. Joseph's simplicity of life; and St. Francis' faith, surrender and poverty of spirit, and Trappist Monk, Fr. Keating, Centering Prayer in his book "Open Mind, Open Heart".

    Reward for Fidelity : 2 Timothy 4:7 to 8 (NIV) ” I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord the righteous Judge, will award unto me on that day.

    Welcome! To this website I dedicate with all my love to Our Lady:

    Mary, the Mother of God.


    "Below are special excerpts that I find helpful. Always reminding myself and everyone (the faithful) to love our Mother in heaven, to pray always the Holy Rosary and maintain our devotion to her."


  • Our Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI:    Promoted:

  • That families and parishes rediscover the prayer of the Holy Rosary.

    "I invite you to pray the Rosary personally, in the family and in the community, learning at the school of Mary, which leads us to Christ, the living center of our faith."

  • That our Priests Need to Be Saints".

    "In the Scripture 'This is the will of God: your holiness!' (1 Thessalonians 4:3), though addressed to all Christians, refers to all priests in particular, for they have accepted the invitation to 'sanctify themselves' and to become 'ministers of sanctification.".

  • At Ordinations: Pope Emeritus reaffirmed.

    "When the weight of the cross is the most heavy, know that this is the most precious hour for you" – . . . "Know what you do, imitate what you celebrate, and conform your life to the mystery of the cross of Christ the Lord."

    It is quite clear that, for the priest, celebrating Mass every day does not mean performing a ritual but undertaking a mission that fully and deeply engages his existence, in communion with the risen Christ "


  • That We Continue asking Mary to help us respond more generously to God's plan "even when we are called to embrace the Cross.".

    “Jesus wishes to bring His kingdom to souls more by suffering than by brilliant preaching.” – St. Therese of Lisieux

  • That We Pray the Rosary With More Intensity

  • That We Must re-Learn How to Pray, acquiring this art anew; even with the very advanced in the spiritual life need to enter the school of Jesus to learn to pray with authenticity.
  • Excerpt from the SERMONS of St. Anthony

    The Lord manifests Himself to those who pause, while in peace and humility of heart. If you look into the murky and turbulent waters, you cannot see your own countenance.

    If you want the face of Christ to appear in your countenance, pause, collect your thoughts in silence, and shut the door of the soul to the noise of exterior things.

  • The greetings of the angels and the blessings of God are not for those who live in public squares, that is, outside of themselves, agitated and distracted.
  • The sweet "Ave" was addressed to the Virgin Mary when she was absorbed in prayer, in the privacy of her house . . .

    God, in order to be able to speak to the soul and fill it with the knowledge of his love, leads it to the solitude, detaching it from preoccupations of earthly things.

    He speaks to the ears of those who are silent and makes them hear His secrets!!
