Word of God Sunday
January 23 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
On September 30, 2019, on the liturgical memorial of St. Jerome, Pope Francis announced that the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time would be celebrated as the Sunday of the Word of God. You might like to take the opportunity to pray this blessing over your Bible. It is adapted from one provided by the USA Bible Society
Saving God, you have revealed your life and your love through the lives of our ancestors in the faith. From Abraham and Sarah, Moses and Miriam, to Mary and Joseph, to Peter and Paul, Martha and Mary, you have spoken your word and called your people to fuller life. We honor your presence in these Scriptures, and we pray that the words of this sacred book may become for us more deeply the living word of God, forming our thoughts, desires, and actions. We ask your blessings on these Holy Bibles and in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
