Meditation Seminar with Sister Madeleine Mary

During this day, we will consider the usefulness and difficulties of meditation and then specifically experiment with two forms of meditation practice that may be helpful resources in Lent and in the years to come: lectio divina and Ignatian meditation. “Lectio Divina,” a Latin term for "divine reading,” describes a way of reading the scripture whereby we gradually let go of our own agenda and open ourselves to what God wants to say to us. Traditionally, this practice has been thought of as having four stages: lectio (reading), meditatio (reflection), oratio (prayer), and contemplatio (contemplation). These stages describe the normal movement within the practice, but there are a variety of ways of doing lectio divina. Through Ignatian meditation, a prayer form found in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, the practitioner either imagines God’s perspective in a passage or imagines oneself fully within a gospel story in order to experience it fully.

Come and explore these ways of praying the Scriptures as means of growing in relationship with Christ.

The Schedule of the day will be:
