U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Announces the Publishing of Lectio Divina of the Gospels

August 20, 2019

WASHINGTON—The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) announces the publishing of Lectio Divina of the Gospels for the Liturgical Year, 2019-2020.

Lectio Divina of the Gospels takes the reader through the traditional process of lectio divina, with reading, meditation, prayer, and contemplation, focused on the Gospel readings for Sundays and major feasts. A unique guide is offered for each Gospel reading to help the reader explore the sacred texts with greater attention and allow the Word to permeate their mind and imagination more deeply. Each week’s lectio divina includes dedicated space for writing out reflections, thoughts, and prayers.
This book takes the reader through the liturgical year, beginning with the first Sunday of Advent on December 1, 2019, and concluding with the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe on November 22, 2020.

This lectio divina prayer guide can be used for personal meditation, as a tool for family prayer, and for small-group reflections on the Sunday Gospel.

The guide is available for order online at or in Spanish at
