Lectio Divina

Lectio Divina is a meditative, prayerful reading of the Word of God and other inspired spiritual texts.

This ancient monastic practice forms the foundation of our personal prayer, purifying and nourishing our minds and hearts for contemplation. Regular Lectio Divina opens us to a deeper self-giving to God and community, the whole Church and all of humanity.

Each sister in the community has been moved by the call to intimacy with God and each is sustained and strengthened on her monastic journey by this daily spiritual discipline.

The silence of the monastic environment and the time allocated to Lectio Divina in our daily timetable ensure a regular space to listen to and be formed by God’s Word in our lives.
