Did You Know…
Lectio Divina is a slow, contemplative praying of the Scriptures. By setting aside quiet time for lectio divina one can be enabled to discover a spiritual rhythm. By this rhythm, we can find a deeper ability to offer more of ourselves to the Father.
How to practice lectio divina:
- Turn to the text and read it slowly, gently. Savor each portion of the reading, constantly listening for the “still, small voice” of a word or phrase that somehow says, “I am for you today.” In lectio divina, God is teaching us to listen to him, to seek him in silence.
- Take the word into yourself. Do not be afraid of distractions. Memories or thoughts are simply parts of yourself that, when they rise up during lectio divina, are asking to be given to God along with the rest of your inner self. Allow this inner pondering, this rumination, to invite you into dialogue with God.
- Speak to God. Whether you use words, ideas, or images–or all three–is not important. Interact with God as you would with one who you know loves and accepts you. And give to him what you have discovered during your experience of meditation. Give to God what you have found within your heart.
- Rest in God’s embrace. And when he invites you to return to your contemplation of his word or to your inner dialogue with him, do so. Learn to use words when words are helpful, and to let go of words when they no longer are necessary.
Lectio divina has no goal other than that of being in the presence of God by praying the Scriptures.
