Lectio Divina

"You will not see anyone who is really striving after his advancement who is not given to spiritual reading. And as to him who neglects it, the fact will soon be observed by his progress." --from an Easter letter by Saint Athanasius.


On this page are links to reading material that can be used fruitfully in the practice of lectio as a way of private prayer. For more information on the discipline of spiritual reading, please see our page "About Lectio Divina."
