Holy Spirit Interactive: The Ancient Art of Lectio Divina

The Ancient Art of Lectio Divina

A very ancient art, practiced at one time by all Christians, is the technique known as lectio divina - a slow, contemplative praying of the Scriptures which enables the Bible, the Word of God, to become a means of union with God. This practice — kept alive in the Christian monastic tradition — is a wonderful way of improving our relationship with God. Holy Spirit Interactive is pleased to present The Ancient Art of Lectio Divina by Fr. Luke Dysinger.
