Faithful called to celebrate Sacred Scripture Jan. 24


In his September 2019 Apostolic Letter “Aperuit illis,” Pope Francis instituted The Sunday of the Word of God to be held every year on the third Sunday in Ordinary Time.

For 2021, that is Jan. 24. It is a day to be dedicated to the celebration, reflection and dissemination of the Word.

A December statement by the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments explains that the day is a way to help people “reawaken an awareness of the importance of Sacred Scripture for our lives as believers, beginning with its resonance in the liturgy which places us in living and permanent dialogue with God.”
