This video cracks me up. I love that this little girl is so intent on getting the psalm down and that she’s candid and comfortable in front of the camera, but almost timid about being proud of herself at the end.
Generally speaking, Catholics aren’t well known for their knowledge of Sacred Scripture; which is really unfortunate considering that our very faith is based on it.
How well do you know the Bible? As a whole or individual verses? St. Jerome said “Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.” What a challenge! I confess that despite my theology major, my scriptural-knowledge muscles have atrophied over the past 4 years and every time I recall St. Jerome’s assertion, I recommit myself to reading the Bible more often, usually restarting at Luke’s account of the Annunciation and Visitation. These are my favorite stories because of Mary’s prompt readiness to accept God’s will and for her immediate sweetness in visiting Elizabeth.
I’m looking for thoughts on this: What makes your favorite verse or book of the Bible so important to you? Are there any particular books that you’d like to study?
[Sidenote: If you want to invest your time in a great Bible Study, I recommend the Courageous Series for women. It's a scriptural examination of true humility and the real feminine genius that Bl. John Paul II discussed in his Letter to Women.]
