Year A

THIRD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
25th / 26th January 2020

What is ‘The Year of the Word’?

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales has designated 2020 as ‘The God Who Speaks’: a year to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Verbum Domini (Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation on ‘The Word of the Lord’) and the 1600th anniversary of death of St Jerome, who translated the Bible from Greek into Latin.

2020, therefore, is to be a year of celebrating, living and sharing God’s word, through a range of events, activities and resources in our parish, Catholic schools and university chaplaincy.

Where do we start? How about these questions:

Where does the Bible fit into your daily life?
How do Catholics read and use the Bible which differs to the
way some other Christians use it?
Why is it useful to learn some Bible passages off by heart?
What is ‘lectio divina’? How do you do it?

So far we have a Bible Study in the parish which meets every Tuesday evening. We should consider what more needs to be put in place to get the most out of this year in which we hope to learn how to receive and treasure the written word of God.
