An ancient practice of the Church, which is still practiced by many religious communities, is that of Lectio Divina (“Divine Reading”). This is the practice of prayerfully reading and meditating upon Sacred Scripture, particularly on the Gospels. In Lectio, we seek to enter more deeply into the mysteries of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ by slowly and meditatively reading the accounts of His life and His teachings left for us by the sacred authors and inspired by the Holy Spirit. We are not simply reading [it’s not about how much we read], but we are seeking to enter more deeply into Christ – so it is more of a slow read, stopping often to reflect and mull on the words and example of our Savior.
Members of the Confraternity pledge to spend 15 minutes (or more) each day in Lectio Divina or in praying the Holy Rosary. In this way, we want to come to know Jesus Christ better and to be conformed to Him.
