Purpose: Catholics today are seeking Jesus in the Scriptures as never before. Many grew up in an era when the Church, busy doing other things, was not putting much energy into teaching the Bible. Some Catholics even picked up a kind of fear of Bible ready – as if danger of false interpretation was so great it was better to have nothing to do with the Bible at all. Today, there is a new emphasis on Scripture among Catholics. Bible Study Groups, an expanded selection of Scripture in the liturgy and encouragement from Church leaders has led many Catholics to dust off the family Bible, looking for nourishment for the spiritual life.
