Lectio divina, the reflective reading of scripture, has long been a popular devotional practice in the Church from the earliest centuries. It consists of four steps:
Read: A slow and thoughtful reading of a passage from the Bible
Reflect: A time of reflection and thinking about the meaning of that text to me as a reader
Pray: A period of prayer to God to bring the message or wisdom of the text to fruit in myself
Act: A decision on what I should do as a result; that is, an action plan to change or improve my life
Text in two colors. Ideal for personal and group reflection.
