Beginning Lectio Divina – Residential or ZOOM
Friday 11 June 2021 @ 5pm
Ends: Sunday 13 June 2021 @ 2pm
Join others in learning the art of Lectio Divina so that entering more deeply into the Word of God, our hearts can be filled with the thoughts, desires and sentiments of Christ’s.
Lectio Divina, or holy reading, is an essential element of Benedictine spirituality and time for personal reading of the Bible in a prayerful, contemplative way is built into the Benedictine day. It is a spiritual discipline that goes back even further than St Benedict to the early church fathers. Lectio Divina encourages us to hang on to every word, to turn phrases over and over as we would a love letter. This weekend will be a practical guide to this key element of Benedictine spirituality, for complete beginners and experienced hands alike.
