It had been a long time since I prayed Lectio Divina with a large group - you simply open up the bible, read a passage from scripture and take time to reflect and pray over it. This is what we did at St. Basil's Church (Toronto) last night with the new Archbishop of Toronto, Most Rev. Thomas Collins. "God is present in the Scripture - and therefore it's important to read it." Archbishop Collins led us through a passage from the Book of Revelation - the New Jerusalem (chap. 21). "This  [New Jerusalem] is our hope, our destination. The Church is not ours. It's God's, Christ's Church and we are His servants." said the Archbishop, who captivated the people gathered there-young and old, religious and lay. "When you know your destination, you find out the direction on how to get there and you follow it." As simple and as daunting as the task may be, the people present last night did not feel alone and instead felt that they had a new shepherd to guide them to the heavenly city.
