Lectio Divina

'Lectio Divina' means 'Sacred Reading.’

It began in the 3rd Century, led by early church leader Origen. He believed that through a practice of reading the Bible thoughtfully and prayerfully you could discover what he called the "higher wisdom hidden in the Word of God". Origen's idea was that Jesus himself was the way by which we can understand the meaning of the Bible and that, if we asked, Jesus would reveal its meaning to us. The practice is about digesting the meaning of the word of God and taking time to think about it.

Our Lord’s Prayer

A simple, reflective way of stilling ourselves to pray at noon (12:00pm) every day.

When the disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray (Luke 11:1), He gave them a simple pattern to follow. He didn’t intend for us to just pray the same words He spoke in Matthew 6:9-13, He intended it to be an outline for prayer. Use each verse of the Lord’s Prayer as a guideline to help keep your prayer-time on track.

Examen

A simple, reflective way of stilling ourselves to pray at the end of a day.

Ignatian spirituality emphasises that we can find God in every circumstance, and The Examen, practiced by St Ignatius of Loyola, is a way to focus back on God.
