CATHOLICISM 101: WHAT IS LECTIO DIVINA?

In 2010, Pope Benedict XVI released an apostolic exhortation called, "The Word of the Lord" urging all Christians to get to know the Sacred Scriptures better. He recommended particular attention to "Lectio Divina". Described as a form of prayerful meditation, Lectio Divina is an ancient Catholic prayer method for reading and praying with the Bible. It is based on the idea that God has something very personal and specific to say to each one of us when we read any Scripture passage.


HOW IT WORKS

Lectio Divina is comprised of four parts: lectio (reading), meditatio (meditation), oratio (prayer), and contemplatio (contemplation) and concludes with actio (action).
