Understanding the Bible
This weekend is the Sunday of the Word of God; according to Pope Francis’ Apostolic Letter, it “is to be devoted to the celebration, study, and dissemination of the Word of God.” So let’s ponder briefly about the Bible as we prepare our hearts for Holy Mass this weekend.
In the 4th century, the Church assembled the “Canon of Scripture,” through much open and honest examination of the authenticity of many existing texts, ultimately selecting 46 books in the Old Testament and 27 in the New.
Catholics believe that while the books of the Bible were written by humans over many centuries, it contains the inspired word of God. And the Holy Spirit inspired the creation of the Canon as well.
Uncover the strong, biblical focus of the Catholic Church in the short video in the Flocknote email, with Word on Fire Institute Fellow Matt Nelson.
We hope to see you at the weekend Mass times where Father Don is preaching. Or stop by and visit Jesus at the Blessed Sacrament Chapel or at daily Mass during the week.
“One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.” — Jesus Christ
