This doesn't answer your question, but fwiw I ran across this the other day... one of the Dominicans (perhaps St. Dominic himself) viewed contemplation of Scripture as a highly spiritual act akin to worship (ie. worship of God, not worship of the Bible).

Reading the Holy Fathers is viewed the same way by the Catholic Church. 

Sacra Pagina can refer both to prayerful reading of Scripture and prayerful reading of the Holy Fathers whose texts are steeped in Scripture.

is this related to the "lectio divina"?
