lectio Divina 2024

December 3, 2023 18 After a period of silent reflection and/or discussion, all recite the Lord’s Prayer and the following: Closing Prayer: O shepherd of Israel, hearken, from your throne upon the cherubim, shine forth. Rouse your power, and come to save us. Once again, O Lord of hosts, look down from heaven, and see; take care of this vine, and protect what your right hand has planted the son of man whom you yourself made strong. May your help be with the man of your right hand, with the son of man whom you yourself made strong. Then we will no more withdraw from you; give us new life, and we will call upon your name. (From Psalm 80) Living the Word This Week How can I make my life a gift for others in charity? Make setting aside time for prayer and service a priority in your schedule.
