When you seek truth, you seek God whether you know it or not(Edith Stein)

 

Lectio Divina

Lectio Divina, an ancient monastic tradition, is a simple way of praying the scripture by taking the word of God deeper and deeper into oneself, and thereby seeking a growing friendship and communion with Christ in God. While Lectio Divina can be valuable in the development of personal contemplative prayer, it is also a treasured, time-proven process for communal prayer and commitment. Our community gathers from time to time for Lectio Divina in common. In contemporary spirituality various adaptations are made of the four essential stages or stations in this practice. Lectio: reading a scripture text slowly and out loud if possible, opening oneself to the power of God's presence and guidance in the word and allowing oneself to be attracted and attentive to the particular word, phrase, or sentences that resonate with special vibrancy within one.
