Here are some Lectio Divina podcasts from Vivificat:

This is my first podcast/webcast in English. May it not be the last!

It consists of a Lectio Divina or "Divine Reading" of next Sunday's Gospel, 5th Sunday of Easter, AD 2007 - Year "C." We have discussed Lectio Divina in a previous post, aptly named What is Lectio Divina? and also discussed the traditional senses of Scripture in The four senses of Scripture. Now, we put it all together in this podcast!

I borrowed the brief explanations on Lectio DivinaThe Fish Eaters' site, a "traditionalist" Catholic site with some contents I find erroneous, incomplete, or tendencious, but whose presentation on Lectio Divina was otherwise pretty good. I took the reading from the 2007 Workbook for Lectors and Gospel Readers, but I'll probably switch to another Catholic version in future podcasts because the readings are based on the NAB and I am not sure about the limitations the powers-that-be may put on reading this version aloud on-line.

This podcast is approximately 21 minutes long. I intend to keep future podcasts at about 10 minutes. This one lasted that long because I had to explain the different "steps" of Lectio Divina as I went through it. I apologize for all technical blunders beforehand. I am still exploring my sound suite and I haven't discovered all the tricks, shortcuts, and techniques. Some transitions are less than perfect, so adjust your volume accordingly.

My accent is also less than perfect, and so is my English pronunciation. Sure, I've been speaking our English language for over 20 years. The learning process never ends! If my accent bothers you, think some obscure Spanish-speaking aspiring contemplative, who dragged himself from his cell in order to share a little bit of what goes on in his heart with you.
