Lectio Divina

Lectio divina (literally 'Holy Reading') is sometimes referred to as the 'Benedictine method of prayer'. It was actually practised by praying Christians long before Saint Benedict (c.480-c.550) came on the scene. However, by the Middle Ages, lectio divina was 'sorted' into a tidy scheme, a scheme which is practised to this day. The scheme was devised by a famous Cistercian monk named Guigo II, Prior of the Grande Chartreuse, France, around 1180, in his classic work, The Ladder of Monks.
