Digital Lectio Divina: encounter the Word on a mobile device

Lectio Divina is a particular form of prayer/meditation in which you read, reflect and pray over Scripture. It literally means, “Divine Reading.” Practiced by Christians for centuries, Lectio Divina isn’t just reading words. It is an encounter with the Word of God–an encounter with Christ through the words of Scripture.

You can choose any Scripture passages you wish to begin. But to help you out, the Order of Carmelites produce materials for Lectio Divina in digital format to walk you through readings and meditation and prayer each day of the month. You can download e-LectioDivina in formats for Apple iBook or Kindle readers. The Carmelites also provide a PDF version you can download or you can read the daily Lectio on line. Available in English, Spanish and Italian.
