Pope Francis has established a new annual Sunday celebration to encourage a greater study of the Sacred Scriptures.
With a special Apostolic Letter published last month the Holy Father has declared that the Third Sunday of Ordinary Time each year is to be marked as Scripture Sunday with special solemnity.
Among the suggestions the makes to mark the day are enthroning the book of the gospels during Mass and distributing pocket copies of the gospel to the faithful – a practice the Holy Father has introduced in the past in Rome after his weekly Angelus address.
The Pope concludes his letter saying, ‘the great challenge before us in life is to listen to Sacred Scripture and practice mercy.’
