What is Lectio Divina?
Good question. Here is how a medieval monk named Guigo describes this
four-fold way of praying the Scriptures:
“Reading seeks for the sweetness of a blessed life, meditation perceives it,
prayer asks for it, contemplation tastes it. Reading, as it were, puts food
whole into the mouth, meditation chews it and breaks it up, prayer extracts
its flavor, contemplation is the sweetness itself which gladdens and
refreshes. Reading works on the outside, meditation on the pith: prayer asks
for what we long for, contemplation gives us delight in the sweetness which
we have found.”
