An Invitation to Pray: Lectio Divina

Fr. Josh Johnson

Do you want to learn how to pray with Scripture? This week, Fr. Josh invites us to pray  using a prayer method called Lectio Divina. Fr. Josh shows us how he prays with Scripture by meditating on the Wedding Feast of Cana in the Gospel. 

Snippet From the Show

In the Wedding Feast of Cana, we see that Mary not only notices the needs of others, but is also eager to bring them to her son.

The Wedding Feast of Cana

On the third day there was a marriage at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there; Jesus also was invited to the marriage, with his disciples. When the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.”  And Jesus said to her, “O woman, what have you to do with me? My hour has not yet come.”  His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”Now six stone jars were standing there, for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to them, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. He said to them, “Now draw some out, and take it to the steward of the feast.” So they took it. When the steward of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the steward of the feast called the bridegroom  and said to him, “Every man serves the good wine first; and when men have drunk freely, then the poor wine; but you have kept the good wine until now.” This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory; and his disciples believed in him.

John 2:1-11
