Lectio Divina

An Introduction

Laurence Freeman OSB always lays emphasis on the close connection between Lectio Divina and Christian Meditation. He encourages us to do both, as meditation helps us to read scripture at a deeper level. Lectio Divina is an integral part of the Benedictine tradition, which is the one that encouraged this discipline and introduced it into Western Christianity.
