    In the article by Ray Yungen linked near the top of the article above, ( “Contemplative Spirituality – the Source of the Catholic Church’s Expansion.”) Yungen refers the reader to “pg. 652” of the 1994 RCC catechism. I’ve checked the catechism online, and it has no page numbers as such, just numbered articles and statements, of which there are thousands.

    If the reference number to the specific statement Yungen was referencing could be given, that would be a great help.

    • Since the page numbers for this quote will vary in different editions of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, we are providing the following location information:
      To find the quote, which Ray Yungen included in his article, as well as an entire section on Contemplative Prayer in the Catechism, please refer to: Part Four: Christian Prayer -> Section One: Prayer in the Christian Life -> Chapter Three: The Life of Prayer -> Article One: Expressions of Prayer -> III. Contemplative Prayer.

        Many thanks, LHT. I was quite unlikely to find it on my own.

        There they are, #2716 and #2717 (in part).

        What a cumbersome, suffocating document is the RCC Catechism. All flowery, pious, high-sounding verbiage, an elaborate man-made structure of religious bondage.

        So glad I left.

    As long as marriage is forbidden in the monasteries and convents the sexual abuse and immorality will continue in the R. Catholic Church all over the world, as it has for centuries. I am dismayed that many girls are entering the convents, thinking that it will be a beautiful experience. I have horror stories from my own family about things that happen within the walls of convents and monasteries.
