Lectio Divina

Lectio Divina is a traditional way of praying meditatively with the bible so that the Word of God can reach into our hearts and minds. It is a simple and natural way of meditation practiced by the early monastic’s women and men who followed God’s call to a radical vocation of silence, prayer and love.

There are four stages in the practice of Lectio Divina:

      • Lectio or reading,
      • Meditation or reflection,
      • Oration or response,
      • Contemplation or rest.

The purpose of this ministry is not to be margined of the common life. It is to have an encounter with God in through those four stages mentioned and then, to face life with faith and a new envision in everything we do.

Join us for an hour of praying with scripture every Tuesday, 7:30 – 8:30 p.m. in the Conference Room in the Spiritual Center. No prior practice or preparation necessary. We usually cover the first reading and Gospel of the following Sunday.
