  1. For one thing, it has been said that Catholics were incapable of properly understanding scripture. I strongly refute that idea. Certain things are unclear in the Word of God, but those things do not have an impact on the plan of salvation and we ought not make them a dividing issue.
    I thrive on the Scriptures, and believe it is critically important that we internalize them because they impart to us the mind of Almighty God. ” Study to show thyself approved unto God. St. Peter tells us that we should always be ready to give an answer to anyone for the reason of the hope that is in us. It’s vital to “eat the Word”, for then the Word will be a source of rejoicing and we shall be able to impart divine truths to seekers.
    Catholics do hear the Word at Mass and the priest usually expounds upon it in the homily, but there is no comparison to personal study.
