Tuesday Evening Lectio Divina Group - Diving into the Sunday Readings

The traditional monastic practice of Lectio Divina (Latin for “holy/divine reading”) provides a way to enter into Sacred Scripture as a living Word for our time. Lectio Divina becomes more about divine listening than divine reading when we take the time to do it. This is why we pray Lectio Divina — to become better listeners of the Lord, to hear more clearly what God is asking of us - opening ourselves to peace, gratitude, and living rooted in Christ.

The basic idea is to spend time listening deeply and intently to what God might have to say to you through Scripture—almost as if the sacred text were a much-cherished love letter from God. Lectio Divina is like a deep conversation with a best friend. It is not a study method. Background knowledge can be helpful but is not essential.  Our real goal is to meet our Lord as we read his Word and allow him to transform our lives to be more like him through the work of the Holy Spirit.

Join us as we meet online every TUESDAY evening, to dive deeper into the upcoming Sunday Mass readings. There is no commitment to join every week, just come whenever you can, spend some time praying through Scripture and sharing with each other.

Christian Literary Club Meeting

"God saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very good." (Gen 1:31). We look at the world and find it soiled and spoilt with war, hatred, pain, suffering, greed and cruelty, lies and sin, vice and accident, disease and disaster of every kind.

Bernard J. F. Lonergan, SJ (Insight,  p. 666):"It would seem that, since God is the efficacious cause of everything in the universe, he must be the author of all its evils and responsible for all its sins. But before leaping to this conclusion..."   you are invited to attend the next meeting of the CLC on Wednesday, 3 July 2024 at 7:30 p. m. New participants are always welcome.
