“Listen, O my son, to the precepts of the master, and incline the ear of your heart…” These opening words of the Rule of St. Benedict capture the essential purpose of the Benedictine Spirituality Group at Christ the King. At the monthly meetings, a portion of the Rule is read aloud (thus listening with ears as well as minds). There is reflection on its application to daily life, and discussion on the insights the reflection has brought to mind. Included in the meetings is Evening Prayer, or Vespers, and Night Prayer, or Compline. This structure engages participants in two Benedictine spiritual practices: Lectio Divina and Opus Dei, or the Work of God.
Everyone is welcome to join the Benedictine Spiritual ministry. Hospitality is another Benedictine virtue. Just come? Anyone interested is encouraged to call the parish office 946-1675 with any questions.
