John 16: 26-27

On that day you will ask in my name, and I do not tell you that I will ask the Father for you. For the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me and have come to believe that I came from God.

John 16: 26-27


Four steps of Lectio Divina

Latin for "Divine Reading"

Lectio (Read)

What does the text say? A commentary might help you understand the context of the passage.

Meditate

What does the text say to me and in my life? What is God saying to me or calling me to understand?

Prayer

What do I say to God in response? (Praise, petitions and requests for grace, thanks)

Contemplate 

What do I do? Is there some way God is calling me to change?

James 5:13-16

Is anyone among you suffering? He should pray. Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyters of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint (him) with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up.

James 5:13-16

Artwork by Fr. De Wit, Photo by Fr. Augustine Foley

I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate to be with you always, the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot accept, because it neither sees nor knows him. But you know him, because he remains with you, and will be in you.

I will not leave you orphans.

John 14:16-18
