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.”
