National Bible Week in the United States is November 12–18. For those using the Gospel Weeklies, every week is Bible week!
On Friday, November 17, we mark the 52nd anniversary of the Second Vatican Council’s Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation (Dei Verbum), which addresses how God reveals himself through Scripture and Tradition.
Find resources from the USCCB here. See how many of these Frequently Asked Questions about the Bible and the Lectionary you can answer. You may wish to share some of the answers with the children in your classroom or home. Learn about the history of National Bible Week and plans for this year’s International Day of the Bible (November 12).
As the children in our classrooms and homes are learning, the Bible is to be treasured, but not by locking it away and never using it. The best way to treasure the Bible is to read it and pray with it as we seek to know and love our God more and more.
