Sure, Catholics Do Examine the Bible!

My family is a cross-area of religious denominations. Some of us are Catholic (my dad and mom and my oldest sister), some of us are nondenominational (my only surviving brother), some of us are Lutheran (my youngest sister) and then there is me - a Nazarene. We ended up all raised in the Catholic Church, and there are points about it that I even now enjoy.When I was a little one, it seemed to me (maybe my mistake) that the Church we attended was not massive on encouraging Catholics to go through the Bible, and I failed to realize till I was much older that there actually had been Catholic Bibles. The most popular of these is the Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible, with the 7 publications not discovered in Protestant Bibles (amid these, one and 2 Maccabees).There is a new openness to the Scriptures among Catholics right now, and I am thrilled about this. In the early days of Catholicism, of class, most of the individuals were illiterate, so it fell to the priests to disseminate the Term to thepopulace. This led to some interesting instances(which I will not go into the following), but one of the consequences was a general perception that it was up to the priest to know the Term, not the people, and I am delighted to see that this has undergone a sea modify!Catholic Bibles are now obtainable in numerous distinct translations and all are a joy to go through. My oldest sister, who truly put in eight several years in the convent, is an avid Bible college student and reads her Catholic Bible everyday.There are several variations of Catholic Bibles, in addition to the Douay-Rheims the New American Bible is really great, as is the New Jerusalem Bible, and the New Residing Translation. You can also locate a Catholic edition of the Bible printed in several different entire world languages, most notably Spanish, as there is a large section of the Spanish-speaking population that is Catholic.It is encouraging to see that the Catholic Church encourages Catholics of all ages to reviewtheir Bibles and create a deeper understanding of God's Holy Word. Right after all, one of the most essential Sacraments is Confirmation and before a little one can go by way of this, they should know their Scripture.It is a blessing to know that, doctrinal distinctions aside, more unites Catholics and Protestants than divides us. After all, we are all believers in the 1 God, Master of the Universe, the Alpha and the Omega, praise His Identify!Alpha Course Christian\nRelated Sites : alpha bible study
