In reading and meditating on Sacred Scripture, we begin to ascend the ladder of Lectio Divina as we open our hearts and minds to hear and understand God's words to us.
Using the example of St. Augustine and the Psalms, Dr. Gray teaches us how to make the most out of oratio and enjoy the fruits of an intimate conversation with Our Lord.
The desire of the Christian's heart is to see God. In contemplatio we rest at the pinnacle of the ladder of prayer, gazing upon God in love.
Prayer that does not lead to action is empty. Dr. Gray demonstrates how, at the end of lectio divina, we take the step of resolutio and resolve to live out God's love as we put our prayer into action.
