Lectio Divina consists of three "steps" in approaching the Sacred Scriptures:
1) Meditation or chewing on the Word
2) Oratio or seeking the face of God
3) Contemplation or beholding the Lord
JPII says this of Lectio:
"Dear brothers and sisters, this development needs to be consolidated and deepened, also by making sure that every family has a Bible. It is especially necessary that listening to the word of God should become a life-giving encounter, in the ancient and ever valid tradition of lectio divina, which draws from the biblical text the living Word which questions, directs, and shapes our lives."
