Online Lectio Divina
Online Lectio Divina – Praying together with Scripture
Friday Mornings, 10:00 – 10:45 a.m., Central time
Meet online for lectio divina, a time for praying with the Gospel of the following Sunday. Our next scheduled gatherings are on Fridays, July 9, 16, 23, and 30, and August 6, 13, and 20. All Christians are welcome to these gatherings, led by S. Penny Bingham OSB.
Lectio Divina means “sacred reading.” It is a way of praying with Scripture, listening to God’s Word. Lectio is part of our early Christian heritage, helping us to encounter God in His living word. In our online lectio divina we read a Scripture passage several times. Short times of silence between the readings allow God’s Word to soak into us, to speak to us. Lectio invites us to pray Scripture, rather than study it, as we listen for God’s voice We open our hearts so that God’s Word can touch us and guide our living as we pray with Scripture. In our online lectio there is time to share from our reflection with other participants, if we choose.
