Holy Week Online Retreat - Free of Charge
Holy Week 2019
A Reading of the Gospels through Lectio Divina
This year, the Priory Institute offers a free retreat based on the Gospels of Holy Week and the Gospel Reading for Easter Sunday. This retreat is made up of eight, 10 minute, recorded sessions with presenters who will guide participants through a reflective reading of the Gospel Reading, following the format used by Lectio Divina communities.
Lectio Divina is understood in this way:
Lectio Divina is an old Latin term that translates as “Sacred Reading” – Reading in which we encounter the presence of God in the Past and Today. It is a traditional way of reading Scripture which fosters communion with God and communion with one another. It is a journey of Reading, Recognising, Responding, Resting In and Reflecting on the word of God.
We do not read for information but for transformation of ourselves and our world. Many are finding it helpful in deepening our relationship with Jesus Christ, celebrating his presence and activity in the world today, and challenging us to enter more fully into it.
Lectio Divina is a way of Reading, a way of Prayer, a way of Doing Theology and a way of Building Community, and all at the same time. It has the potential to usher in a whole “new spiritual springtime” in our personal lives and church today.
