Experience the ancient, beautiful, and life-transforming practice of lectio divina—the prayerful reading of Scripture. An ideal Bible for anyone who desires to reflect on the individual stories and chapters of the biblical books, while being led to prayer through meditation on that biblical passage.
'The Church must be constantly renewed and rejuvenated and the the Word of God, which never ages and is never depleted, is a privileged means to achieve this goal. Indeed, it is the Word of God, through the Holy Spirit, which always guides us to the whole truth (cf. Jn 16:13).'
'In this context, I would like in particular to recall and recommend the ancient tradition of Lectio divina: the diligent reading of Sacred Scripture accompanied by prayer brings about the intimate dialogue in which the person reading hears God who is speaking, and in praying, responds to him with trusting openness of heart (cf. Dei Verbum, n. 25). If it is effectively promoted, this practice will bring to the Church—I am convinced of it—a new spiritual springtime.'
