Pope Francis has instituted one Sunday, the Third Sunday of the Year as a Day of the Word of God. He says: “A day devoted to the Bible should not be seen as a yearly event but rather a year-long event, for we urgently need to grow in our knowledge and love of the Scriptures and of the Risen Lord, who continues to speak his word and to break bread in the community of believers.”
Cultivating an intimate relationship with Sacred Scripture will open our eyes, our hearts, our minds, to the work of God around us. Scripture won’t take us away from the present moment. This is a fear that some have! Rather, spending time with the living Word of God will enrich our lives, revealing to us the deeper workings of God in our midst.
