A powerful practice to start off any academic year is a blessing of the books, an event where students are encouraged to bring their texts together to ask God to grace the words within. Where there was once nothingness, let there be knowledge. Where there once was ignorance, let there be intrigue. Where there once was apathy, let there be adventure! This event encourages scholars to see their texts as sacred and invites them to be read and experienced as such. Integrating learning with Lectio Divina, and a host of other sacred prayers and practices, this event encourages participants to see studying as a means of spiritual growth. Let the pursuit of academic excellence simultaneously be a pursuit of the Almighty! Schedule your school’s blessing of the books today!
