Lectio Divina with Archbishop Thomas Collins - The Parables of Jesus
This is a sample of Lectio Divina from Season 3, Episode 5:
Lectio Divina is not a catechesis or a teaching but it is a prayer, a divine reading, a personal encounter with God in Sacred Scripture.
This ten-part third season captures the monthly encounter between Toronto's chief shepherd and his flock as he explores the Parables of Jesus as found in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. From the story of the mustard seed to the parable of the prodigal son, Archbishop Thomas Collins provides the faithful gathered at St. Michael's Cathedral with the opportunity to nourish their faith life by contemplating Christ's teachings as found in His parables.
In each session Archbishop Collins slowly reads an excerpt of Scripture passage, offers a short reflection, and invites the congregation to quietly meditate on the passage. Salt + Light Television invites you to this personal encounter with the Word of God in Lectio Divina with Archbishop Thomas Collins: The Parables of Jesus.
