Praying the Word: Lectio Divina - Psalm 119:145-152

Coming from the Benedictine tradition, the ancient form of prayer called lectio divina, means the divine reading. It has been compared to savoring a delicacy. You chose a certain kind of food. You take it up, examine it. Place it in your mouth, chew it carefully and with intent, savor it, and then digest it, allowing it to nourish your body. Since the Word of God is the primary means by which God has chosen to communicate with us, learning to pray Scripture is an exhilarating form of communion with God- craved by those who acquire its taste. Join us as we explore what Lectio Divina is and how to pray in this fashion.
