Lectio Divina is the ancient monastic art of praying with the Bible. You start reading slowly and meditatively, and talk to God about what you're reading. In doing this, you are trying to draw out of the reading the meaning, and how it applies to your life. It is the very opposite of speed-reading. I know people who have been using a book of the Bible for Lectio, and they may be in the same book for months. Bottom line? It is used to pray to God. See links below.
Lectio Divina (divine, or holy, reading) is a way of acknowledging that our book of scripture - the Bible - is alive and active and of allowing it to be used by God to speak directly to our hearts - in order to deepen our relationship with God and to grow us spiritually. A passage of the Bible is read slowly and reflectively to allow the words to soak into our hearts and minds. It is not a way of Bible study - trying to unravel the meaning of the Hebrew or Greek words - but is a way of opening ourselves to God using a meditative approach. Here is a reminder of how you might do Lectio Divina:
The most popular form of prayer using the Bible is called Lectio Divina, which means Sacred Reading and was popularized by St. Benedict back in the sixth century. There are several ways to practice Lectio, but none of them are complicated, nor are they set in stone. The primary thing is to take a book of the Bible, and start reading it - slowly and meditatively. When something strikes you, stop, think about it, and ask God about it, and apply it to your life. If you run out of things to talk to God about, you go back to the text and read some more. For more resources on Lectio, see the links below:
Lectio Divina is a traditional Benedictine practice of scriptural reading, meditation and prayer intended to promote communion with God and to increase the knowledge of God's Word. Studying the Bible may involve meditation and prayer but generally Bible study involves some helps such as a concordance, a commentary or dictionary or possibly other people.
