Lectio Divina is part of the daily life, and Rule of St. Benedict for his order. Benedictines divide their day between three main activities; Prayer, both the Mass and the Office; Manual Labor, which can include anything from tending the garden, milking cows, working in the Kitchen or Library, whatever is needed to run the community; and Lectio Divina, which is the reading and meditating on the Sacred Scriptures, Fathers or any other Spiritual Book that lifts ones mind to God.
