Dare I ask for a modern “How to” manual for such a spiritual exercise?
Dare I ask for a deeply spiritual work by one of the great contemplatives of Catholic history and presume to be able to approach such a work at their level?
Do I even know what I am asking? Probably not.
But the Holy Spirit does, and He will bring somone to this thread with a reply, pointing me to exactly what I need.
And if not, I’ll go to a lectio divina retreat at the monastery and learn from the brothers. And I’ll wish that I didn’t have to leave.
