Bishop Paul-André Durocher explains the mysterious term ‘Lectio Divina’ to a group of young people at a youth program held in our Diocese last summer. Pope Benedict, in speaking of Lectio Divina, said:
"I would like in particular to recall and recommend the ancient tradition of Lectio Divina: the diligent reading of Sacred Scripture accompanied by prayer brings about that intimate dialogue in which the person reading hears God who is speaking, and in praying, responds to him with trusting openness of heart (cf. Dei Verbum, n.25) If it is effectively promoted, this practice will bring to the Church – I am convinced of it – a new spiritual springtime."
– Pope Benedict XVI , September 2005
