Bible Sunday: Coming to love and understand the Scriptures better

In an interview for Vatican Radio to mark Bible Sunday, Fr Adrian Graffy, Chair of the Church’s National Scripture Working Group, responds to a recent survey which found fewer than half of churchgoing Catholics read the Bible each week outside of Church.

Bishops in England and Wales have begun to use Twitter as one way of encouraging more Catholics to pray with, know and use their Bible each day.
