and this is the Lectio Divina process:

LECTIO DIVINA

 Moment One: (Lectio)  Read the Scripture

passage for the first time. Listen with the “ear of

your heart.” What phrase, sentence or even one

word stands out to you? Begin to repeat that

phrase, sentence or one word over and over,

allowing it to settle deeply in your heart. Simply

return to the repetition of the phrase, sentence or

one word, savoring it in your heart.

 

Moment Two: (Meditatio) Reflect, relish the

words. Let them resound in your heart. Let an

attitude of quiet receptiveness permeate the

prayer time. Be attentive to what speaks to your

heart.

 

Moment Three: (Oratio) Respond spontaneously

as you continue to listen to a phrase,

sentence or word. A prayer of praise,

thanksgiving or petition may arise. Offer that

prayer, and then return to repeating the word in

your heart.

 

Moment Four: (Contemplatio) Rest in God.

Simply “be with” God’s presence as you open

yourself to a deeper hearing of the Word of God.

If you feel drawn back to the scriptures, follow

the lead of the Spirit.
