Seeing the Word is a program of guided reflection that makes it possible to pray with images from
The Saint John's Bible - the first handwritten and illuminated Bible commissioned by a Benedictine Abbey in more than 500 years.

Illuminating Ministry

Illuminating Ministry provides an opportunity for church leaders and those in ministerial formation to engage in community and prayer. By focusing on seven distinct charisms or values of Benedictine spirituality and basing its prayer movement on lectio divina, this journal inspires theological reflection on one’s own life and ministry. Illuminating Ministry, which promotes spiritual companioning in groups, becomes an exceptional tool for exploring and renewing one's call to ministry through the following features:
  • Seven chapters written by pastoral ministers and the director of ministerial formation at Saint John’s School of Theology•Seminary
  • Stories from the authors that illuminate the experience of their ministries
  • Beautiful illuminations from The Saint John's Bible presented in full color with corresponding Scripture verses
  • Authors’ reflections on the charisms as well as the Scripture text related to the images
  • Spaces to record responses to reflection questions and pages to write personal thoughts, feelings, and prayers inspired by the lectio divina process
