Every Thursday about 20 Sisters from the Motherhouse at Nazareth gather to pray the scriptures of the following Sunday using the Lectio Divina method of prayer. The process consists of a Bible enthronement while singing a mantra, the reading of the Gospel several times, along with reflection periods of quiet designed to go deeper into prayer and contemplation. The process also includes simple periods where the participants share words or phrases from the Scripture that “spoke” them. The session ends with a period of contemplative prayer and a reflective video to bring the experience to completion.
