IDEA BANK > Advent Lectio Divina

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?

Ideas for making lectio divina a favorite part of the day:

  • Choose a consistent time, so that you and the students look forward to it.
  • Be consistent with expectations of silent, independent work
  • Change the scene: go to the chapel, lower the lights, or put on Gregorian chant or sacred music.
