1447-B Monastery Drive, Latrobe, PA 15650


Pope Benedict XVI, Address on Dei Verbum
In this context, I would like in particular to recall and recommend the ancient tradition of Lectio divina: the diligent reading of Sacred Scripture accompanied by prayer brings about that intimate dialogue in which the person reading hears God who is speaking, and in praying, responds to him with trusting openness of heart (cf. Dei Verbum, n. 25). If it is effectively promoted, this practice will bring to the Church - I am convinced of it - a new spiritual springtime.

Format for Session

The format for the Lectio Divina follows the format which was contained in our packets from Fr. Donald. We will use the next Sunday's Gospel for our Lectio Divina.

Listening for the Gentle Touch of Christ the Word
How Christ the Word Speaks to Me
What Christ the Word Invites me to Do
Petitions and Ending Prayer

Other Notes

One last note. There is nothing carried over from one week to another, so you can attend whenever you are able.
