Bible week celebrates family

WASHINGTON — Families, parishes, schools and other Catholic groups can participate in National Bible Week, Nov. 15-21, with resources provided in English and Spanish and available on the website of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. The theme of the observance is "The Bible: A Book for the Family/La Biblia: Un Libro para la Familia."

The Second Vatican Council's Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation Dei Verbum will celebrate its 50th anniversary on Nov. 18. A variety of resources that highlight the Bible in Catholic life are available online: www.usccb.org/bible/national-bible-week/index.cfm.

Resources for families include "Enthroning the Bible in the Family" (Cómo entronizar la Biblia en la familia), "Making the Word of God a Part of Your Home" (Cómo hacer que la Palabra de Dios sea parte fundamental del hogar), "Ever Ancient, Ever New: The Art and Practice of Lectio Divina" (Siempre Antigua, Siempre Nueva: El Arte y la Práctica de Lectio Divina) and "Sharing the Word of God at Home" (Compartiendo la Palabra de Dios en el Hogar).

Resources for parishes include a faith formation session on reading and understanding the Bible, a guide for starting and maintaining a parish Bible study, a family retreat, tips for using the Bible in catechesis and prayer and a Scripture vigil on the themes of Catholic Social Teaching.

The Confraternity of Christian Doctrine will act as a clearinghouse for activities undertaken by dioceses and other groups, including the Association of Catholic Publishers, the American Bible Society and the Catholic Biblical Federation.

From the USCCB
