Lectio divina is an ancient spiritual practice that can help us to hear God speaking to us through the words of Scripture. In recent times, Pope Benedict XVI and a Synod of Bishops have recommended that lay people pray with the Scriptures using this method. In this book, respected biblical scholar Stephen J. Binz chooses the Old Testament reading and the gospel for each Sunday in cycles A, B, and C during Lent, including the complete text from the Lectionary. Then he leads readers through the steps of lectio divina-reading, meditation, prayer, contemplation, and action-by suggesting themes and verses on which to focus.
Questions for personal reflection are provided for each of the Sunday readings.
A perfect Lenten resource for both individuals and parish groups.
