Saint Padre Pio who was an ardent believer in Christian mediation indicated that through the study of books, a person can search for God and once can find him through practice of meditation.
Christian Meditation indicates a type of prayer where a person tries in an organized way to reflect Gods revelations and reflect them in his mind. Mediation is derived from meditaria Latin word that has meaning of concentrate. In Christianity, meditation involves process of focusing deliberately on particular thoughts (For instance, biblical scene which involves Virgin Mary and Jesus) who reflect the meaning in relation to love of God.
Christian mediation is contradictory to type of mediation followed by eastern countries since the portrayal of God is different in Bible when compared to Brahman or Krishna as portrayed by Indian teachings. In eastern meditations, many categories of Christian meditation will not depend on constant use of mantras but will depend on stimulating the thoughts and to highlight the meaning. The aim of Christian mediation is to strengthen the personal relationship through love of God which indicates Christian communion.
With Christian mediation, there was warning given by Catholic church with indication of incompatibility in combining eastern mediation style with that of Christian meditation. It was announced by the Vatican in 2003, with A Christian reflection of New Agewhere church will avoid any concept which is close to the New Age.
Christian mediation is also referred to indicate the mid level of 3 stage portrayal of prayer which indicates lot of reflection that 1st level vocal prayer and is lot more integrated than different layers of reflection in Christianity.
