Prayer nook

December 2021

In preparation for the Plenary Assembly of the Catholic Biblical Federation in April 2022, we invite all members and friends of our Federation to pray for God’s blessing, the Holy Spirit’s guidance, and the intercession of Mary, the Mother of the Word, for all its regions and their activities. 

The intention for this month you can find here:

Presentation of the Region

Catholic Biblical Federation has been present in this region right from its inception in 1969; together with Europe, this is the oldest region in the Federation. It is also the largest, containing 34% of all CBF members in the world, best developed, and most active. Thanks to a fruitful cooperation of the CBF with the biblical department of the Council of Latin American Episcopal Conferences (CELAM), almost all countries in the region organize Bible Sundays, Bible Weeks, and Bible Months. Numerous biblical centers run by dioceses, religious orders, and lay associations offer a great variety of biblical courses in various formats, and organize countless Bible-based Church activities, often organized in cooperation with the United Bible Societies. Thanks to these efforts, the Catholic Church in Latin America stands as a shining example of a Church rooted in and build on the Word of God. Still, the challenge of providing sufficient funds for sustaining biblical ministry in the reality of political instability and the atmosphere of social inequality and conflicts remains.
