Catholics and the Bible

How We Read and Pray with Scipture


As Catholics, we believe that the Bible is both the inspired Word of God and a unique book written by many authors for specific peoples. We believe that the Bible is a living document that has real relevance for us today. The Bible can be intimidating: is it a straightforward history book or is it all “made up”? Am I supposed to read it on my own or should I just listen to the preaching at Mass to hear the message? Aren’t we, as Catholics, discouraged from reading it for fear that we might come up with our own meaning?

We have compiled the following video resources to help you better understand how we, as Catholics, honor and understand the Scriptures. Enjoy and study them as to get closer to Jesus!
