August 14, 2013 – Fr. Paul Maillet: How to be Lifted Up by Our Lord in Sacred Scripture

// August 14th, 2013 // The Joy of Discovery

We may each have a Bible in our homes, but do we often go to Sacred Scripture as we might go to the refrigerator when hungry? Our Lord desires to meet us in the Sacred Texts and we explore here how to do this with Fr. Paul Maillet, Associate Professor of Scripture at St. Patrick’s Seminary in California. The method is called Lectio Divina. Fr. Paul begins by sharing with us his remarkable call to the priesthood, and in particular how he was inspired while visiting a young man who was dying. Father also shares with us an example of how to apply Lectio Divina, how to be “lifted up” by Our Lord. We reflect on a passage from Matthew 11: 25 – 30: “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
