Lectio Divina: An Introduction
Show Notes

Welcome to the first in our series on Lectio Divina. In this episode, Steve Petty, the Pastoral Associate at Guardian Angels Catholic Church, provides an overview of this ancient form of the reading of Scripture. This contemplative practice involves four movements of prayer:

Lectio (Reading)
Meditatio (Meditation)
Contemplatio (Contemplation)
Oratio (Prayer)

You can find a worksheet to help you move through those elements on our website.

The weekly guided Lectio meditations will air on Fridays beginning September 4.
