As Catholics, we understand the Bible to be the written Word of God. Scripture is at the centre of everything the Church does. The Word of God shapes our prayer and worship.
The Bible shows us how to understand the world – how we are called to live and relate to each other.
2020 was the tenth anniversary of Verbum Domini – Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation on ‘The Word of the Lord’ and the 1,600 anniversary of St Jerome’s death. This inspired the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales, in partnership with Bible Society, to launch an exciting Scripture initiative The God Who Speaks.

In Liturgical Cycle C, the focus falls on St Luke. Our Gospel readings at Sunday Mass are predominantly taken from Luke. You can listen to the whole of St Luke’s Gospel in audio and download additional resources.
