“To be ignorant of Scripture is to be ignorant of Christ.” – St. Jerome
In Christian communities, Bible study is the study of the Bible by ordinary people as a personal religious or spiritual practice. The Catholic Church has always venerated the divine Scriptures, and teaches “Sacred Scripture is the speech of God as it is put down in writing under the breath of the Holy Spirit.” She also, “forcefully and specifically exhorts all the Christian faithful to learn ‘the surpassing knowledge of Jesus Christ’ (Phil. 3.8) by frequent reading of the divine Scriptures. Read Bible in a year initiative taken by the Evangelization commission of the Parish was a successful in distribution of over 200 Bibles as well as handouts of Bible Reading Planner.
