Fr Michel de Verteuil’s Lectio Divina with the Sunday Gospels, Year B has been republished and is now available at the Liturgical Commission’s bookshop. The main purpose of this book is to help readers to enter more fully into the richness of the gospel message and in so doing, to associate themselves in prayer and reflection with the wider Church community.
This book makes for an ideal Christmas present; it is especially suited for all preachers of the Word – priests, deacons, lay ministers, catechists, prayer groups, meditation groups, lectio divina groups and Bible study groups.
Lectio Divina is a method of biblical reflection; its basic principle is discovering that Bible reading is a personal encounter with God. When we read the Bible and ponder over what we read in a prayerful way, we recognise our lives in it as well as the world in which we live. God speaks to us through our experience of life and of the world.
Through lectio divina we become conscious that we are sacred stories and as such it is for everyone. God speaks to each of us through His Word and it is up to each one to listen and respond. For more information, contact the Liturgical Commission bookshop 627-3213, or 772-3012.
