Biblical Apostolate

The aim of the Biblical Apostolate is to offer opportunities for all to read and engage with the Bible as a life giving encounter with God, leading to a deeper lived relationship with God. 

“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Psalm 119:105

For Christians, the Bible is more than a collection of ancient stories. It is not a static document, but a living text which continues to speak to us today.

50th Anniversary of Dei Verbum 1965 – 2015

2015 marked the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council’s Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation which speaks about the revelation of God’s word through Scripture, Tradition and Church teaching. 

 

“For the words of God, expressed in human language, have been made like human discourse, just as the word of the eternal Father, when He took to Himself the flesh of human weakness, was in every way made like men.” (DV 11)

  • “The Living Word” is a project undertaken to mark the 50th anniversary of Dei Verbum as a joint partnership of America Magazine and the American Bible Society. A series of articles and videos are available.
