ACCEPTING THE EMBRACE OF GOD: The Ancient Art of Lectio Divina
Friday, September 27-Sunday, September 29, 2019
Lectio Divina, the ancient Christian art of praying the scriptures, is a way of allowing the Bible, the Word of God, to become a means of union with God: in other words, through lectio divina, the reading of sacred scripture becomes the gateway to contemplative prayer. In this workshop, ancient and modern approaches to the practice of lectio divina, as well as its application to the practice of contemplative prayer will be studied and practiced.
