Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Lectio Divina is a form of prayer which invites us into a deeper encounter with the Lord through Scripture. It gives us the time to listen attentively to the Word, to be sensitive to its action on our hearts, and to reflect on what is being asked of us in our daily lives. Lectio Divina allows the Lord to penetrate our hearts and to fill them with His Love. Ultimately, through this encounter we are invited into an ever-deeper relationship and union with Him.

Listen with your coffee in the morning, see how easy and beautiful prayer can be.
