Sub-region of Southern and Western Europe of the Catholic Biblical Federation organised a teleconference on the topic: "How to remain in His Word? Liturgy, Catechesis, Charity from the Bible to Everyone's Life" - Towards the Sunday of the Word of God".
«Thus, we read the Scriptures so that they may “read us”. And it is a grace to be able to recognize oneself in this passage or that character, in this or that situation. The Bible was not written for a generic humanity, but for us, for me, for you, for men and women in flesh and blood, men and women who have a name and a surname, like me, like you. And when the Word of God, infused with the Holy Spirit, is received with an open heart, it does not leave things as they were before: never. Something changes. And this is the grace and the power of the Word of God» (Pope Francis, 27.1.2021)
The conference will be available Online since January 20, 2024 at 2:00 PM CET (Rome time). It is hosted by the General Secretariat of the Catholic Biblical Federation in cooperation with the Friends of the CBF.
