Lectio divina is an ancient and simple way of praying with God’s Word. It involves listening to hear God speak and responding to His invitation. These resources can help you ponder His Word with Mary while waiting for Christmas morning.
Some call it mindfulness. We call it prayer. Lectio divina forces us to slow down and take time with God. In the hustle and bustle of December, it is easy to miss Him. Why not create space and time in your day for yourself and your child or student to contemplate God’s eternal Word become flesh in the Incarnation?
Some call it “mindfulness.” We call it prayer. Use lectio divina to help your students focus on the true meaning of Christmas.
