What is Lectio Divina?
Contemplative Outreach describes Lectio Divina as follows: “Like Centering Prayer, Lectio Divina cultivates contemplative prayer. Unlike Centering Prayer, Lectio Divina is a participatory active practice that uses thoughts, images and insights to enter into a conversation with God.” Father Arico defines Lectio Divina as “a four-step dance with God to read, to reflect, to respond, to rest. It deepens our relationship with God”.
Who is Father Arico?
Father Carl Arico is a Founding Member of Contemplative Outreach, founded in 1984 to foster the process of transformation in Christ in one another through the practice of Centering Prayer. Father Arico has practiced Centering Prayer since 1975 and taught the prayer since 1978. Known for his humor and his ability to bridge the gap between the clergy and laity, he has traveled extensively in the United States and internationally to present workshops and direct retreats for both priests and laypeople. Father Arico is co-author of the book Living Our Priesthood Today (with Father Basil Pennington), and the author of Taste of Silence, a guide to the fundamentals of Centering Prayer.
