“He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures”

Luke 24:45

In 2019, Pope Francis established that the Third Sunday in Ordinary is "The Sunday of the Word of God." The pope intends for this day to bring into focus our need to study, learn, and love the Holy Scriptures.

Pope Francis calls all of us to "develop a closer relationship with scared Scripture" so that our eyes, ears, and hearts are opened. Surveys have shown that few Catholics read the Bible on their own or as a family. But this weekend highlights the continual invitation to return to God's Word. When we open the scriptures and share God's Word in our homes, we will experience a spiritually nourishing feast that will strengthen our faith and feed our soul.
