Sunday of the Word of God

Pope Francis begins his Apostolic Letter Aperuit Illis, which institutes the annual Sunday of the Word of God, with a verse from the Gospel of Luke: “He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures.” The Holy Father continues, “Devoting a specific Sunday of the liturgical year to the word of God can enable the Church to experience anew how the risen Lord opens up for us the treasury of his word and enables us to proclaim its unfathomable riches before the world.”

Sunday of the Word of God occurred last Sunday, and we’re celebrating by offering special prices on Catholic Bibles and commentaries throughout the week so that all the faithful can “grow in religious and intimate familiarity with the sacred Scriptures.” Some Bibles are available for as little as $0.99.
