The Sunday of the Word of God
The Sunday of the Word of God was celebrated on Sunday 24th January 2021.
This day was instituted by Pope Francis on 30th September 2019 ~
“Devoting a specific Sunday of the liturgical year to the word of God can enable the Church to experience anew how the risen Lord opens up for us the treasury of his word and enables us to proclaim its unfathomable riches before the world.” Pope Francis - ‘Aperuit illis’
On this special day, people are invited to bring their Bibles to Mass to be blessed and those who are Readers in their Parish are also celebrated.
Following the celebration of this day, we can reflect upon how we can live out the Scriptures in our own lives and respond to God's Word and teachings.
