If you are interested in knowing more about Lectio, please read the information below.

First step - Read the passage slowly twice, open the ear of your heart and allow God to speak to you, then meditate on a word or phrase that calls your attention.  Allow 3-5 minutes of meditation, then share it with the group.


Second step - Read the passage slowly again, open the ear of your heart and allow God to show you the presence of Christ in the text, then meditate.  What is Christ telling you or showing you through the text?  Allow 3-5 minutes of meditation, then share it with the group.


Third step - Read the passage slowly again, open the ear of your heart and allow God to show you what He wants you to do or to be from this day forward.  Allow 3-5 minutes of meditation, then share it with the group.


Lectio ends with prayers of intercession for each other and for the oblates, relatives, friends, and benefactors.  It can also end with laying on of hands and praying for each other. ​You can pray for the person on your right and then that person can pray for you.
