The Year of the Word of God

"Throughout the world today, many people hunger and thirst for the life, the healing, and the peace that only Christ can bring. We know that out of the abundance of His love, Christ speaks to people as friends and lives among us so that He may invite and bring everyone into fellowship with Himself. In this perspective, the Church, since its earliest day has sought to proclaim Christ and make Him known. This mission is the very heart of the Church. We cannot deny however, that many people remain deprived of that “easy access” to the Lord in Sacred Scripture and preaching which the Council sought," wrote the President of the Catholic Biblical Federation, Cardinal Luis A. Tagle, on January 25, 2019. 
Cardinal Luis A. Tagle continues, "The year 2020 marks the 1600th anniversary of the death of Saint Jerome, the great translator of the Bible, who sought to render the Scriptures into the “common” everyday language of ordinary people, so to make the written Word of God available for all. His zeal to make the Scriptures accessible to people arises from his conviction that “ignorance of Scriptures is ignorance of Christ”. This anniversary inspired the Executive Committee of the Cathilic Biblical Federation (CBF) to encourage the CBF membersand all Christians to mark 2020 as a “Year of the Word of God” from the First Sunday of Advent (December 1, 2019) until the feast of Saint Jerome (September 30, 2020).
So do not be ignorant but be inspired by the Holy Scripture daily.
