Prayer Practices – Lectio Divina
October Prayer Practice: Lectio Divina
“We speak to God when we pray; we listen to Him when we read the Scriptures.” – St. Ambrose
Lectio Divina (“divine reading”) is a technique to help us listen to God in scripture long associated with the Benedictine tradition. Fr. Matthew Leavy of the Benedictine Woodside Priory will take us through the history and guide us in practice of Lectio Divina. Thursday, October 3, 7:00-8:00 p.m. at Sacred Heart, Saratoga in the Parish Center.
What is the Prayer Practices series?
Are you wanting to increase your prayer life? Are you looking for a way to pray that connects with you? Sacred Heart introduces Prayer Practices, a monthly opportunity to explore the breadth of Catholic prayer styles. Prayer isn’t only the recitation of words, and Prayer Practices will bring in art, body movement, music, contemplation, and other methods of helping us connect with God. Learn a bit about the history of each prayer style and then practice praying together as a group. Come for the entire series or only for a particular practice that intrigues you. One Thursday night each month, 7:00-8:00 in the Parish Center.
