The privileged place for reading and
listening to the word of God is in the liturgy. By celebrating the word and
rendering the Body of Christ present in the sacrament, we bring the word into
our life and make it alive and present among us.
– Pope Benedict XVI
The proclamation of the Word of God
in the Scriptures results from the action of the Spirit. The power which made
the Word into a book, now, in the liturgy, transforms the book into the Word.
