Lectio Divina

In Christianity, Lectio Divina (Latin for divine reading) is a traditional Benedictine practice of a slow, contemplative praying of the Scriptures. Time set aside in a special way for lectio divina in our life as monks enable us to discover in our daily life an underlying spiritual rhythm. Within this rhythm, we discover an increasing ability to offer more of ourselves and our relationships to the Father under the guidance of the Spirit, and to accept the embrace that God is continuously extending to us in the person of his son, Jesus Christ





“Listen carefully, my son, to the master’s instructions, and attend to them with the ear of your heart” (Rule of Benedict). Listening is what Benedictine spirituality is all about in a culture that watches but very seldom hears. Benedictine spirituality is about listening to four realities: the Gospels, the Rule, one another and the world around us. The spiritual life is achieved only by listening to all of life and learning to respond to each of its dimensions wholly and with integrity.
