The Lectio Divina Journal provides a contemplative prayer practice for the everyday human experience. The long and lived history of Lectio Divina provide four movements (lectio - reading of, meditatio - reflecting on, oratio - responding to, contemplatio - resting in) that move the participant(s) from simply attaining information toward acommunion and union with God that is formational and transformative. The journal provides a daily (Monday - Friday) Lectio Divina invitation, a Saturday Examen Prayer practice, and a Sunday journaling option.

Great app for an important practice
I’ve been using the print copy of this Lectio Divina Journal (which I love!) for a number of years. It’s been an important practice for me to learn to be still and listen, in my otherwise crazy world. I was so excited to see this app which makes it even easier to get into a daily habit of spending some time with this practice. I can use on my lunch break at work, while I’m waiting in the car for my kids or really any other situation where I can take a moment to find space to be quiet, center my heart and spend a bit of time in His presence. Much more life giving than just picking up my phone and scrolling further through Instagram.
The app is well laid out and simple to use. It’s apparent a lot of time and effort went into the thoughtful details needed to make this so intuitive. I love that it saves all of your journal entries as well. The $1.99 per month fee is hardly anything, considering the convenience it offers as well as the fact it saves the purchase of a new journal every 6 months.
For those of you that haven’t been introduced to Lectio, this is a great place to start. For those of you like myself who have been attempting to make this a daily rhythm but find that challenging at times, will appreciate this new option!
Life-giving practice and now an app!!
I have been using this practice in notebook form (which I LOVE) for a few years now and it has been so life-giving for me. I am so happy about the app and online version that will backup all of my journal entries! This is one less notebook that I need to decide whether to keep when the year is done. Thank you so much for creating something so helpful for our spiritual formation.
I've been using the hardcopy version of lectio for a few years and wasn't sure how a digital version of this would be but man, it's been a great alternative when I'm on the go. It's sleek, convenient, and allows me to start my days in a great reflective space. And I love how this app saves my reflections so I can pull them back up whenever I want to review them. Such a blessing!
