"From the moment I stepped out of my car, I felt immersed in the peace that is the Cenacle. I wasn't sure what I was looking for but now I understand it was just being able to set aside my daily baggage and just be. I expected peace and quiet but didn't realize how encompassing it would be for body, mind and spirit, the Spiritual Direction, Massage, Art Cove, Liturgical Services, the food, and the great hospitality."

Lectio Divina (Divine Reading)

10:30 am- 12:00 pm

Lectio Divina is a traditional Benedictine practice of scriptural reading, meditation, and prayer intended to promote communion with God and to increase the knowledge of God's Word. It does not treat Scripture as texts to be studied, as the Living Word.  In our Friday session of Lectio Divina, the chosen passage from the following Sunday Gospel reading is read, then its meaning is reflected upon. This is followed by prayer and contemplation.
