Ephphatha, That is, Be Opened: Lectio Divina Reflections on the Daily Gospel, for 2020
The book’s title of Ephphatha, that is, Be Opened! refers to Jesus’s healing words to the deaf man. In whatever way we reflect on the daily Gospel readings I strongly believe it is Jesus’s desire that we open ourselves to hear what is meant for each of us both individually and outward towards others that come into our lives. I use Lectio Divina as my own method of Gospel reflection. The Lectio Divina Reflections on the Daily Gospels in this book are for the Liturgical Calendar year 2020.
Inspired by the Living Flame of Love: Daily Lectio Divina Reflections 2019 Liturgical Calendar Gospel Readings
In beautiful prayerful poetry St. John of the Cross, Doctor of the Church, takes us on a journey into the depth of faith within God’s unconditional love. The world needs each of us to be like St. John of the Cross.One way to allow this love to daily wash over us is to use the practice of Lectio Divina (Divine Reading). As you read these short daily Lectio scripture reflections, you will find they have a broad range from the very personal to sometimes external unknown people or situations. My choice of meditative words, phrases or perception are in italics next to the Gospel passage. My hope is by sharing the reflective vignettes that you will consider exploring your own relationship with God and the other through prayer.
Although by Night: Lectio Divina reflections on the Daily Gospel using the 2018 Liturgical Calendar
In beautiful prayerful poetry St. John of the Cross, Doctor of Church, takes us on a journey into the depth of faith in God’s love. Likewise, the Biblical artist James Tissot lets us see the reality of St. James with arms outstretched like Jesus on the Cross filled with prayerful gratitude, open to receiving God’s unconditional love. The world needs us to be like St. James.
