Reading (Lectio): Read a Scripture passage listening with the “ear of your heart.” What word of phrase captures your attention? Repeat it gently.
Reflecting (Meditatio): Reflect on and relish the words. Be attentive to what speaks to your heart.
Responding (Oratio): As listening deepens, allow responses to arise spontaneously -- praise, thanksgiving, questions, petitions.
Resting in (Contemplatio): Simply “be with” God’s presence as you open to deeper meanings of the Word of God for you.
