Word of God Sunday

“Sunday of the Word of God,” the new celebration instituted by Pope Francis, was celebrated around the world for the first time on Sunday, January 26, 2020.

 

“The relationship between the Risen Lord, the community of believers and sacred Scripture is essential to our identity as Christians. Without the Lord who opens our minds to them, it is impossible to understand the Scriptures in depth. Yet the contrary is equally true: without the Scriptures, the events of the mission of Jesus and of his Church in this world would remain incomprehensible.” – Pope Francis
