Event Details

In this 1-Day Programme, Fr Joseph and participants will:

  • READ

Read slowly, carefully, and deliberately. The most important question in reading the Bible stories is not “Is it true” but rather “What does it mean?”

  • MEDITATE

Through Meditation we enter into the text and discover that it has been fulfilled in our own life-experience. In Lectio Meditation, the mind is active – particularly the imagination through making connection with memories – but also feeling, emotions and intuitions (our families, neighbourhood, parish, country and world).

  • PRAY

Thanksgiving, Repentance, Petition and Contemplation. Like children who have played and worked all day in the knowledge of the presence of a loving parent, we are now ready and content to be picked up and held by the parent and to rest in his/her loving embrace. Compare a comtemplative moment to this experience of becoming captivated and absorbed in the beauty of the setting sun in whose light and warmth we have moved all day.
