2 | Open the Scriptures

Start with Silence.

In silence, place yourself in the presence of God. Pray to the Holy Spirit or along with the video.    

Read Luke 1:26–38

God’s Word touches the heart. Listen to Fr. Benedict Croell, O.P., or read it silently.    

Spend time in silence and slowly re-read the Scripture passage.

Now, open up your Life of Christ Lectio Divina Journal to pages 14–16. Take some time to read and respond to the questions.  

After listening to Father’s commentary on the passage, write down on page 17 of your journal anything that resonated in your mind and heart.
