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.
 

  1. READ – Read the passage slowly and carefully. 
  2. REFLECT – Choose a word or phrase from the passage that is meaningful to you.
  3. RESPOND – Decide how this word or phrase connects with your daily life.
  4. REST – Sit quietly and enjoy the stillness, and after a few minutes have your personal conversation with God.
