Read the gospels and allow God to whisper in your mind and in your heart words that can have a profound effect on the way you think and act.
(Cardinal Hume)



The important questions, “Why am I here?”, “What would Jesus have me do?” and ”What happens after I die?” are hardly ever asked. And our world has no answers.

Christians need to base their lives on the teachings of Jesus Christ. Reading the Bible will tell them what Jesus wants them to do.

Reading the Bible will help the reader be happier and closer to Jesus.


At the end of the sixteenth century the Church provided an English translation called the Douay-Rheims version.

It was used in English-speaking Roman Catholic churches up to the middle of the twentieth century.

Today, The New American Bible, Revised Edition is the first new Catholic bible in 40 years.



Make time to read the Bible

If you are serious about having a better life and really knowing Jesus, then read the Bible each day.

Start with Mathew’s Gospel and move on to the rest. A recommended order is: Gospels, Book of Acts, Epistles of Paul, Psalms, and Proverbs. Read and reflect. Consider these pages as God’s letters to you.

Before your reading, pray "Holy Spirit, help me to understand Your Word.”

End by asking yourself: “What have I learned? Is there something in my life that needs to change?” and “What does God want me to do?”

Children and the Bible

Keep a family Bible in your home, easy accessible to all. Children need to hear you read it.

Encourage your children to ask questions about the life of Jesus Christ. If children learn who Jesus is, how He died for them, what the Bible teaches, they will make the right decisions in their future life.
