Tobit, Song of Songs, and All That Biblical Jazz

Tobiah and Sarah pray Raphael Azariah binds demon please work this time

Tobiah and Sarah pray before the marital act as Raphael binds the demon Asmodeus who had possessed the bride.

During Lent last year, I took to doing a bit of Lectio Divina each day and resolved to share my reflections on Facebook. (I’m not big into traditional methods of evangelization, so the idea of posting scripture to my social media accounts seemed both challenging and obnoxious.) I could tell that it was something I needed to do, however, so I did–and the results were overwhelmingly positive.

Due to popular demand, those posts are now publicly available here. Please remember that these were written as Facebook posts for a relatively private and extremely varied audience–and my unfiltered personality is quite expressed in them. Some are a bit cheesy, some are profound, and some are a little embarrassing to post. All posts were written with the hope that the reader would first review the Bible passages, and then indulge in the reflection. Please enjoy them, and I hope you learn a thing or two from these reflections on my own Lenten journey.
