Lectio Divina

Frequently I am asked about the prayer of Lectio Divina. Here are two websites who can explain this prayerful reading Scripture more eloquently than I can.
Introduction to Lectio Divina

Lectio Divina Resources

Our dear Pope Benedict XVI time and again encourages Catholics to spend at least 30 minutes a day in prayerful Scripture reading. If there is only one spiritual practice you pursue this year, let it be Lectio Divina.
That's me away.

I think I would identify lectio divina as the single most important activity to deepen the spiritual life of most Christians. Thanks for the post.

The Carmelites also have a comprehensive lectio divina site:

Matthew 5:16 So let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
