How to Read BibleToday, we celebrate the Bible Sunday on the theme ’Welcome the Word’ which presents an opportunity to hear afresh God’s word through reading and reflecting on the Scriptures in our parishes and homes. Let us remember that in our parish we do have regular meetings, which are based on The Holy Scripture, with the open ears for the Holy Spirit inspirations and leading. Thanks to all who ever attended and still do attend, pray, meditate, discuss and put into practice God’s Word. Our meetings take place on Tuesdays from 7.40pm to 9.00pm and it is named ‘HEAR GOD’S VOICE’, and all are very welcomed.
“It would be beneficial if every Christian community, on one Sunday of the liturgical year, could renew its efforts to make the Sacred Scriptures better known and more widely diffused. It would be a Sunday given over entirely to the word of God, so as to appreciate the inexhaustible riches contained in that constant dialogue between the Lord and his people. Creative initiatives can help make this an opportunity for the faithful to become living vessels for the transmission of God’s word. Initiatives of this sort would certainly include the practice of lectio divina, so that the prayerful reading of the sacred text will help support and strengthen the spiritual life. Such a reading, centred on themes relating to mercy, will enable a personal experience of the great fruitfulness of the biblical text – read in the light of the Church’s spiritual tradition – and thus give rise to concrete gestures and works of charity.”
