10 Minute Daily Retreat

Welcome to my blog: 10 Minute Daily Retreat

Some years ago I came across an ancient Christian practice of prayer known as 'Lectio Divina', a Latin term, meaning "divine reading".

 It encourages us to read a section of scripture slowly, with a ‘listening’ heart. The 10 Minute Daily Retreat draws parallels to this method of prayer.

In this blog, a team of writers publish a reflection which appears on Fridays and Sundays.  The reflections are based on the Gospel of the day, as it appears in the Liturgical Calendar. 

If you would like to ensure you don't miss out on a reflection you can submit your email address in the box above. 

Alternatively, you can  download the App. onto your phone or device. 

Described below are the suggested steps that make up the 10 Minute Daily Retreat.

5 minutes: READ over the text slowly.
REFLECT on any word or phrase that struck you.
5 minutes: LISTEN for God's voice in the silence.
RESPOND with a prayer that feels comfortable for you.
We have recently finished the 32 Day Christmas Prayer Challenge, and are having a small break.

The reflections will continue on Monday, January 12th, 2015.

I look forward to sharing this journey with you. Please feel free to send me a message if you have any queries.

Many Blessings,
Susanne
