Lectio Divina

The Sacred Scriptures are God’s word that instruct, console and challenge the Christian. A purposeful and attentive reading of God’s Word had always been practiced since early Jewish times and was continued by the early Church. This constant reading and listening to God’s Word is necessary because “The Church does not live on herself but on the Gospel, and in the Gospel always and ever anew finds the directions for her journey.” (Pope Benedict XVI, Address to Participants of the International Dei Verbum Congress, Sept. 16 2005) 

An excellent introduction to the nature and method of Lectio Divina is found in the Benedictine website and the Carmelites’ website that includes daily material for your Lectio Divina.
