Online project teaches young people how to pray with the Bible

2014-01-04

Two realities, seemingly unrelated, come together in the "Lectionautas” project. It's a new, online learning tool that incorporates the Lectio Divina, a centuries-old method to read the Bible.

It also seeks to increase knowledge of the Holy Scriptures among young people.

Organizers say that to speak about God, someone first needs to speak with God.

"With the Lectio Divina, we understand all the messages that God conveys through the Holy Scriptures, and we incorporate them into our every-day life.”

The masterminds behind "Lectionautas” are the Latin American Episcopal Conference, or CELAM, the Pastoral Biblical Center for Latin America, and the American Bible Society. They've launched the project throughout Latin America and the United States.

Through their website, lectionautas.com, users can read or listen to the Lectio Divina every Sunday, or even consult the Bible online. The site also offers workshops to learn the Lectio Divina method, becoming a modern school of prayer.

"Praying the Lectio is like opening a window to chat with God.”

"One day, you read about a verse from the Old Testament, another from the Gospel, and the next day, a letter from St. Paul. And god always tells us new things.”

About 3,400 young people are enrolled in lessons through the Lectionautas page. They will be the ones that will help their parishes teach other to pray, and spread the Gospel.
