Lectio Divina #6: Salmos 35:18

En la gran congregación te daré gracias;
entre mucha gente te alabaré.
Salmos 35:18

Saint Jerome believed one should begin reading the Bible with the Book of Psalms. Originally written in Hebrew and Greek, the Bible was translated into the Latin Vulgate by Jerome c.400AD.  The first English translation appeared c. 1300. A Spanish translation of the Bible appeared in 1569 and is credited to Cassiodoro de Reina.

We invite the whole Hayes Community to take a few minutes for Lectio Divina, literally, Holy Reading. Lectio Divina is simply the slow, silent, repetitive and prayerful reading of the Scripture: Read it slowly.  Focus on a word or phrase.  Reflect. Pray.
