An excellent Scripture resource...

One of the things I enjoy doing is teaching the Wednesday evening Scripture study here at the parish. I’ve loved reading and studying the scriptures from the time I was a child, and that led me to complete my undergraduate degree in Biblical Studies. In fact, the more deeply I studied the Bible, the more of the Catholic faith I discovered – no surprise there!

Anyway, I’m very excited about this new site from the Congregation for Clergy. It’s called “Biblia Clerus,” and it links every passage in the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, with commentaries which are taken from a tremendous variety of sources, all written in complete conformity with Sacred Tradition and magisterial teaching.

Whether you’re a busy parish priest or deacon who’d like to teach a Scripture study for your people, or if you’re a layman who’d like to know more about God’s sacred word, this is an extremely helpful site. I highly recommend that you have a look.
