LECTIO DIVINA (PRAYING THE SCRIPTURES)



ABIDE
Keeping Vigil with the Word of God
Macrina Wiederkehr

In the gospel of John Jesus directs us, "Abide in me, as I abide in you." This book is an invitation to make the Word of God your home through the practice of lectio divina. In  these scriptural meditations, the piercing reflective questions and personal prayers lead the reader into a deeper relationship with the Divine. You are invited to breathe in the Word, wait before the Word, walk through the pages of scripture as a pilgrim, and finally, abide in an intimate and transforming communion with God.
the format lends itself to personal as well as group prayer and reflection.

LECTIO MATTERS
Before the burning bush
Mary Margaret Funk, OSB

A respected guide accompanies the reader in exploring the various levels of lectio divina as taught by the ancient church writers and by sharing her own long experience. By means of this wisdom both ancient and new, lectio divina can become our burning bush, a real encounter with the living God, in which we take off our sandals and bow our brow to the ground.
