Monastic Lectio Divina With Fionnuala Quinn op

October 7 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm


Monastic Lectio Divina

Wednesdays, 7, 14, 21 & 28 October  2020 | From 2:30 – 4:30 pm

Cost: €40 | Booking essential for 12 Participants only | Booking on Eventbrite

The four afternoons will deepen one’s individual practice of Lectio Divina as a way of praying the scriptures. The traditional four moments of the prayer (reading, reflecting, responding and rest) are explored as expressions of the four senses of scripture: the literal, allegorical, behavioral/moral, and unitive senses. The monastic form of Lectio Divina is used for both individual and group experiences of the prayer. Prayer times will be followed by small group faith sharing.

The fruits and gifts of Becoming a Word of God will be explored using the Lectio Divina method on a personal life experience. Our time together includes periods of silent prayer, such as Centering Prayer, to support the praying of Holy Scripture. Profound silence helps us open our hearts and minds to hear with the ear of our hearts both the presented conference materials and the scripture we pray.

Recommended Reading:
The Lectio Divina Conference is based on the teachings of Fr. Thomas eating and Sr. Maria Tasto, who designed the Lectio Divina workshop under his guidance.  Sr. Maria’s book The Transforming Power of Lectio Divina, is recommended and is available from Book Depository.
