A quote from Pope Francis:
“I would very much like all Christians to be able to learn ‘the sublime science of Jesus Christ’ through frequent reading of the Word of God, as the sacred text offers nourishment for the soul and is the pure and perennial source of the spiritual life of us all. We must make every effort so that each believer may read God’s Word, because as Saint Jerome says, ‘ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.’ ”
