Weekly scripture readings
Spiritual Reading of Sacred Scripture is traditionally called lectio divina or divine reading, a practice from early monastic communities. This prayer over the scriptures, usually taken from the gospel, includes four (4) steps.
- READ – Read the passage slowly and carefully.
- REFLECT – Choose a word or phrase from the passage that is meaningful to you.
- RESPOND – Decide how this word or phrase connects with your daily life.
- REST – Sit quietly and enjoy the stillness, and after a few minutes have your personal conversation with God.
