(a) For question #1: Deuteronomy 6: 4-5; Deuteronomy 6:6-9
(b) “The Church has always venerated the divine Scriptures just as she venerated the Body of the Lord, in so far as she never ceases, particularly in the sacred liturgy, to partake of the bread of life and to offer it to the faithful from the one table of the Word of God and the Body of Christ.” (Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation, 21)
Questions for Reflection
1. What do the readings listed above suggest about how we are to honor the Word of God?
2. How does the liturgy of the Word at Mass (the place and manner of proclamation of the Scripture readings) reflect the presence of God to us?
3. How has the Bible, reading and reflecting on it, been a part of your life? How do you see it becoming more or less a part of your life?
