Sr. Germana's Next Talk on Lectio Divina

We are pleased to inform you that Sr. Germana's second talk on Lectio Divina has been rescheduled for Wednesday, May 6th, beginning at 7:00 p.m. here in our Pauline Center.

As those of you who attended the first talk will remember, Sr. Germana's presentation was insightful and inspiring. Lectio Divina is an ancient prayer form that involves meditatively reading and praying with the scriptures. It enables the pray-er gradually to grow in the ability to allow God's Word to guide one's life. St. Gregory the Great said that the purpose of Lectio was "to know the heart of God through the Word of God."

The recent Synod of Bishops on the Word of God encouraged this practice of "sacred reading," and we are happy to announce that after Sr. Germana's talk, we will be extending the invitation to whoever wishes to join a special group that will meet twice a month for Lectio Divina. Please call us at the Book Center if you are interested in joining such a group, and keep an eye out for more information as plans develop.
