Lectio Divina

principals of the Lectio Divina

Lectio Divina: We would like to establish whether there is interest in participating in Lectio Divina.

Initially this would have to take place on Zoom, but when current restrictions lift and it is possible to meet in person, Lectio Divina could take place in the Pastoral Centre. Please email or phone the Parish Office if you would be interested in participating.

Lectio Divina (literally Holy Reading) is sometimes referred to as the Benedictine method of Holy Prayer. It was practiced by Christians long before St. Benedict (c 480-550), however by the Middle Ages it had evolved in to the method practised today which comprises 4 stages; Lectio (reading), Meditatio (meditation), Oratio (prayer) and Contemplatio (contemplation).
