    Lectio Divina

    Lectio Divina (Divine Reading) is an ancient form of prayer practised by early Christians. They gather to hear the Word of God and then meditate on these Scripture passages to listen to God with their hearts.

    Praying using the Lectio Divina method involves four step or movements:

    Reading (Lectio)
    Reading a passage from the bible a few times to allow a word or phrase to touch one's heart.

    Meditating (Meditatio)
    Meditate on the word or phrase to discover how it relates to one's life.

    Praying (Oratio)
    Talk to God about one's mediation and pay attention to promptings in one's heart.

    Resting (Contemplatio)
    Rest in God's love and embrace.

    Ignatian Contemplation

    Ignatian contemplation is a prayer method recommended by St. Ignatius of Loyola based on his own prayer experiences. Also known as imaginative contemplation, this method calls for one to be immersed in a scene, especially a Gospel scene, to encounter and interact with Jesus Christ using all of one's senses.

    Through this prayer method, one is encouraged to speak to Jesus and have a heart-to-heart talk with Him. One is usually moved by this intimate encounter with the Lord who reveals to us things about ourselves.
