Small Group Opportunities - NEW
The Sacred Beauty Prayer Cards benefit individuals and small groups in prayer. A NEW small group prayer guide and audio tracks are now available to help guide small groups through Visio Divina using the Sacred Beauty Prayer Cards. The 6-week prayer guide focuses on growing in the virtues of faith, hope and love while giving participants the opportunity for quiet reflection and group discussion. The audio tracks lead small group participants with prompts through the Visio Divina contemplation. The FREE prayer guide and audio tracks are available to download.
It was powerful to see how everyone in our group would see something different in the images and how God was talking to each one of us in different ways.
I love being guided by the prompts by a leader so we are all going through the process together. The sequence, the layout and everything flowed very naturally.
I really enjoyed the community we created in our small group and growing in prayer together as we tried Visio Divina for the first time.
This form of prayer makes me feel a closeness to God that I have rarely felt in other forms of prayer. I just love ‘being still’ in the presence of God.
Listen to Reflection
Below is a real-life example of a reflection using a photograph and Scripture. This process is
similar to what is found in Sacred Beauty Prayer Cards.
“As he was walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon who is called Peter, and his brother Andrew, casting a net into the sea; they were fishermen. He said to them, ‘Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.’ At once they left their nets and followed him.” –Matthew 4:18-20
What is Visio Divina?
Visio Divina means “divine seeing.” It is a form of prayer that uses images and artwork. It includes contemplating a photograph, religious art or anything visual that invites God to speak to you in a deeper way. Sacred Beauty Prayer Cards incorporate Visio Divina and Lectio Divina (“divine reading”) to better open our eyes and hearts to God’s light in our lives.
"The photography is so beautiful! I was delighted in seeing how well the images tied to the Scriptures and personal stories. The beauty and intricacy of the photographs took my thoughts further into the reflection and my heart to praise. They moved me to a loving and genuine conversation with Jesus. I absolutely loved my prayer experience using the Sacred Beauty Prayers Cards. I can't wait to get them for my friends and family!" -Luisa
