Lectio Divina Reading

August 7, 2005

A Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Come Holy Spirit and Living Flame, pour into our hearts from the depths of the Trinity the rays of your light.  Help us to listen more deeply to the words of scripture you have enflamed. May your holy fire penetrate our hearts and minds so that we in turn may penetrate your words at ever deepening levels of understanding, insight and response.  AMEN

THE PRACTICE

 The four moments along the circumference of the circle are

  • Read softly aloud the selected passage

  • Reflect in the sense of ruminating

  • Respond spontaneously in prayer

  • Rest in God beyond thoughts and particular acts

Love is patient, love is kind.
It is not jealous, it is not pompous,
it is not inflated,
it is not rude,
it does not seek its own interests,
it is not quick-tempered,
it does not brood over injury,
it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices
    with the truth.
It bears all thing, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never fails.

1 Cor 13:4-8
