"Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
Matthew 11: 28-30

There is only one way of reading that is congruent with our Holy Scriptures.
This is the kind of reading named by our ancestors as Lectio Divina, often translated as “spiritual reading,” reading that enters our souls as food, enters our stomachs, spreads through our blood, and becomes holiness, love, and wisdom.
Let's face it, life can be hectic and that's without an everchanging economy, a global pandemic and rush hour. At times, it is essential for us tosimply BE STILL and focus soley on communing with God. Based on Psalms 46:10, Fr. Richard Rohr instructs us on a simple prayer of just being.
Journaling as a spiritual practice is another way to abide in the presence of God, stay connected to the vine, and care for our souls. Being intentional about creating space to listen for God's still small voice can be transformative but. don't take my word for it, try it for yourself!
"Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me."
