Praying with Scripture


Be Still and Know He is God

Sunday of the Word of God

I love feast days! Pope Francis has established a new annual feast on the 3rd Sunday of Ordinary Time called the Sunday of the Word of God to emphasize and remind us of the value of sacred Scripture.


How do I pray with scripture?  

Opening the Word of God can be intimidating. Let me give you two easy ways to savor and pray with scripture that can fit into your busy life.

Download this Praying with Scripture Guide. This one-page printable .pdf will walk you through the steps of both Lectio Divina and Ignatian Contemplation/Imaginative Prayer.

I invite you to set aside quiet time to be with God. When you are ready to move forward, begin with a moment of silence. Take a deep breath and let’s dive into scripture.
