Lectio Divina. A Benedictine oblate blog

St. Leo Abbey Church
Lectio Divina Wall

[Click photos to enlarge]

St. Leo Abbey in Florida, USA added a lectio divina wall in its Church of the Holy Cross. The lectio divina addition is part of a painting and improvement project for the church’s interior.

The picture of the text is part of the description of the wall visitors will read in the lectio divina display case below carvings representing the four Gospels, (St. Matthew, a divine man; St. Mark, a winged lion; St. Luke, a winged ox; and St. John, a rising eagle). The carvings were made by a monk of the abbey.


Note on photos.

The lectio divina wall is outside the chapel for St. Joseph. His statue can be seen in the background of the middle picture.

To the right of the wall is a door to the cloister walk along the east side of the church of the Holy Cross.

By the door you can also see the the holy water font (or "stoup").

I took the photos March 16, 2009 on a visit to pray vespers with the monks.
