Lectio Divina Mornings - 6 weeks of Praying with Scripture

Have you ever felt that something was missing from your prayer life?  Does it seem dry or fruitless?

Join us ONLINE over the next 6 weeks on Wednesday mornings, as we discover together how to deepen our prayer life through Lectio Divina. The focus of Lectio Divina is not a critical analysis of sacred text, but rather a more personal way of experiencing the Living Word through contemplation and reflection.

Dates: April 19th-May 24th (Mondays)

Time: 9:30 - 11:00 h

Monday Evening Lectio Divina Group - Diving into the Sunday Readings

During this pandemic, our prayer life — among other things — may have been disrupted. We’ve had to find different ways of praying without in-person community to support our faith life. The traditional monastic practice of Lectio Divina is a good way to help us deal with stress and provide a way to enter into sacred Scripture as a living Word for our time.

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 Monday 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.
