The Agony and Ecstasy of God's path Nicholas Saunders A Benedictine monk explained to me that "Ecstasy opens up a direct link between myself and God". He had only taken Ecstasy with a small group of like-minded people in pursuit of prayer. "Ecstasy has the capacity to put one on the right path to divine union... It should not be used unless one is really searching for God." Prayer, he said, is communication with God, but tends to be blocked by the internal dialogue, distractions and losing faith in oneself.
