Lectio Divina ~Thursday (Online)

The practice of Lectio Divina helps me to open to the voice of God speaking to my heart through sacred scripture. It’s a prayer practice that allows me to delight in that Word, to savor its language and images, and to trust in the presence of God that leads to nourishment and wisdom. - Rich Meyette
Lectio Divina (literally divine or sacred reading) is a prayerful practice that allows us to become personally immersed in the Scriptures so that the Word of God may penetrate our hearts.
The four stages of this prayerful practice:
- Read the Scripture
Listen with the ear of your heart
- Reflect on the meaning of the Scriptural passage
Become aware of what touches you and is meaningful to you in the selected Scripture
- Pray to God
Respond spontaneously to the Word of God and offer any prayer that rises up
- Contemplate the Word of God
Rest in the Word of God and allow God to speak in the silence
