Suggested Format for Infusion
The right format for each group’s infusion process will depend on the amount of time they have, the background of the members and the kind of resources they are using.
A simple format that is easy to do with any reading whether it be scripture, church document, or other meditative reading is as follows:
BEGIN with the Sign of the Cross.
READING: Leader or other member read portion of document aloud.
SHARED REFLECTION: Members of the group reflect on a word or phrase that they heard in the reading. [If the group is large you may want to break down into smaller groups of two or three].
SHARED PRAYER: A prayer can be shared by the leader or by members of the group.
BLESSING: Close with a blessing such as: “May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life. Amen.
