Lectio Divina&    Silence 
The monk is a man of prayer, striving always for an increasingly intimate union with God. That striving is grounded in and nourished by the essential monastic practice of lectio divina.
Lectio Divina is primarily the reading of, meditation on and praying over the Holy Scriptures. This practice leads, only with God’s grace, to contemplation. In a broader sense, spiritual reading includes commentaries on Scripture, patristic writings and spiritual classics of all times. This prayer leads to a personal response of faith in God. God is address as “Thou” or “You” and is the focus of one’s whole consciousness in a personal relationship of union or communion. A prayerful response to God takes form in adoration, thanksgiving, petition and repentance.
An open and receptive silence is essential to union with God in lectio divina and private prayer. We mutually support our lives of seeking God by maintaining an atmosphere of silence and recollection.
Silence Silence is an indespensable quality of monastic life and an essential means to seek God. At Assumption Abbey we strive to let it circumscribe our whole way of life. To achieve this ideal we arrange for silence in specific places and times so as to enhance our spirit of recollection and foster prayer and union with God.
