CENTERING PRAYER AND LECTIO DIVINA – Fri. 6/12/15 at 4:00 pm
We awaken in Christ’s body as Christ awakens our bodies……………Then open your heart to Him and let yourself receive the one who is opening to you so deeply. For if we genuinely love Him, we wake up inside Christ’s body where all our body, all over, every most hidden part of it, is realized in joy as Him, and He makes us, utterly real, and everything that is hurt, everything that seemed to us dark, harsh, shameful, maimed, ugly, irreparably damaged, is in Him transformed and recognized as whole, as lovely, and radiant in His light we awaken as the Beloved in every last part of our body.
Symeon The New Theologian (949-1022
(“forget” your self-consciousness and allow the Mind of Christ to inform your being)
From Mechthild of Magdeburg: “Effortlessly, Love flows from God into man, Like a bird Who rivers the air Without moving her wings. Thus we move in His world One in body and soul, Though outwardly separate in form. As the Source strikes the note, Humanity sings – The Holy spirit is our harpist, And all strings Which are touched in Love Must sound.
