Sunday of the Word of God

Sunday Of The Word Of God

In 2019, Pope Francis established the Sunday of the Word of God to be celebrated each year on the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time. As the Holy Father stated in his apostolic letter instituting the observance, “Devoting a specific Sunday of the liturgical year to the word of God can enable the Church to experience anew how the risen Lord opens up for us the treasury of his word and enables us to proclaim its unfathomable riches before the world” (Aperuit illus, no. 2).

On January 23, 2023, in observance of the Sunday of the Word of God, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, through a grant from the American Bible Society, will offer a “Sunday Seminar Series” of five videos about Sacred Scripture in the life of the Church. These videos, available in English and Spanish, will feature some of the most renowned biblical scholars in the United States and will be accompanied by discussion/reflection questions and suggestions for further reading. The videos will be made available on January 22, 2023, by clicking here.
