About lectio divina notes

Lectio Divina means 'holy reading'.

It is the process of prayerful reading of Scripture and other suitable texts with a view to meditation and understanding of Scripture and ourselves, for as the fourteenth century Cloud of Unknowing instructs, Scripture enables us to hold a mirror to ourselves, and is a necessary part of any spiritual program.

The key centring point for our reading of Scripture is the liturgical cycle of the Church.  Accordingly, this blog provides, where possible, the Matins readings for the Benedictine Office according to the 1962 calendar and rubrics (with selected material from earlier versions of feasts where appropriate).

It also aims to highlight the enduring value of the commentaries of the Fathers and Theologians for our understanding of Scripture by using selections from them to aim the reading of particular books of Scripture.
