Lord our God, Father of all,

you sent your Son Jesus Christ among us to reveal to us that you care about people

and that your love extends to all,

without any distinction of race or culture. Give us a great respect for all people, whatever way they come,

and let your Church embrace all cultures, that Jesus may truly be

the Lord and Shepherd of all, now and forever.

"Lectio divina," a Latin term, means "divine reading" and describes a way of reading the Scriptures whereby we gradually let go of our own agenda and open ourselves to what God wants to say to us. In the 12th century, a Carthusian monk called Guigo, described the stages which he saw as essential to the practice of Lectio divina. There are various ways of practicing Lectio divina either individually or in groups but Guigo's description remains fundamental.
