Spiritual Reading

“Reading, as it were, puts solid food into our mouths, meditation chews it and breaks it down, prayer obtains the flavor of it and contemplation is the very sweetness which makes us glad and refreshes us.”

This classic formulation of lectio divina, or spiritual reading, is taken from the writings of Guigo the Second, a European monk of the 12th century and quoted in Ways of Imperfection by Simon Tugwell.
