Benedict XVI says, “the priority for the Church today is above all to nourish itself with the Word of God, so as to bring forward the new Evangelization”.
He expressed his desire during the closing mass with the Synod Fathers on 26 October 2008 that the conclusion of the synod “would be taken to every community”, so that “the need is understood to translate the Word that has been heard into gestures of love…”
Continuing, he said, “It is necessary for the faithful to have wide access to sacred Scripture so that people, finding the truth, can grow in authentic love”. (Zenit. Org News Agency, 27 October).
