Lectio Divina is a way we pray the scriptures with words. Visio Divina (holy seeing) is a way to pray with the eyes. The church for centuries has used the cross, stained glass, art, statues as invitations to pray with the eyes. As we invite the Holy Spirit, this practice of savoring a piece of art can be imaginative, refreshing and stirs in us the desire to worship God in the beauty of created things.
