"I joined the RCIA group last year, at a difficult
time in my life and therefore I was very nervous
about walking into a room of people I didn't know
especially to talk about my faith, something which
had always been very private. I was made to feel
comfortable straight away and from there my
relationships grew and I remembering feeling really
safe and supported. Each week we would read passages
from the bible and discuss in small groups and what
I enjoyed about this part of the meeting was we made
the bible relevant to our daily life. It really
helped to deepen my understanding of the Catholic
faith and how we can use it in simple tasks to help
others each day for the 'ordinary life'. I now have
a wonderful set of friends and we have a laugh and
share good food and conservation together. I haven't
looked back, not only have I restored my faith in
the Catholic church but also in people as well."
Lectio Divina has been used by
the church for centuries as a tool for deepening
prayer life. Meaning 'Spiritual Reading' it is
a way of reading the bible, making your reading a
prayer. It helps you to see how the Holy
Spirit , speaking to you through the bible, has
something to say about your life.
