Lectio and Centering Prayer for Conflict

Sacred Reading for Community Prayer [adapted from Carl Arico, A Taste of Silence (Continuum 1999)].

Lectio: Listening to the Word of God or Reading God’s Word

  • As we listen to the Word of God for the first time, I invite you to be aware of any word or phrase that catches your attention.
  • After a minute of silence for reflection, share out loud with the group — if you are moved to do so — the word or phrase that caught your attention.
  • After sharing, allow a few moments of silence in order that what was heard may sink deeper within.
