It can be argued that for any Christian to be deeply grounded in the Church and Christian belief, there should be the study of the redemption of man from the Fall (Gen 3:15) through all the actions of God in support of the Chosen People and to the incarnation, life, death, resurrection, ascension of His Son and to the parousia. All the events associated with them are found in Sacred Scripture: the Word of God.
On September 30, 2019, the Feast of St Jerome, Pope Francis issued a motu proprio titled Aperuit Illis, instituting ‘The Sunday of the Word of God’. The Sunday will take place every year on the third Sunday of Ordinary Time beginning January 26. The Holy Father noted that the day should be devoted to “the celebration, study and dissemination of the word of God.”
