I am adding a new category to the blog today – Lectio Divina. I suppose this is similar to my other category called Thought for the Day, but for this category I want to emphasize the fact that you should meditate on the passage that is quoted. Today's passage is from the Office of Readings for today. I suggest reading the first two sentences then pause and meditate on it before moving on to the last sentence. Think about each word and what it really means.

You were made in the image of God. If then you wish to resemble Him, follow His example. Since the very name you bear as Christians is a profession of love for men, imitate the love of Christ.

From a homily by Saint Asterius of Amasea, bishop

Simple, and yet if you really think about it, profound.
