Choose the gospel reading from any Sunday
Read the passage slowly, a few words at a time. Read it
out loud or in a whisper, and repeat words or phrases whenever you feel like it.
Linger wherever you feel drawn or moved by what you have read,
or perhaps confused, even disturbed by what the words are saying
to you – these feelings are often the springboard for growth.
Respond to what has moved you: give thanks, or share your
sadness and confusion. Why has this phrase touched you so?
Finally, allow what has taken place in you to just sink in, to permeate you, allow yourself to bask in holy presence.
