WASHINGTON (CNS) — The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has acquired the domain name Catholic.Bible.
The site, https://catholic.bible, is already up and running. It contains a survey from the American Bible Society on Catholics’ use of the Bible.
With National Bible Week being observed Nov. 12-18, there are links to resources in both English and Spanish, as well as links to the New American Bible revised edition and to the Little Rock Scripture Study website.
The theme for the weeklong observance is “The Bible: A Book of Faith/La Biblia: Un Libro de la Fe” and recognizes the 25th anniversary of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
Catholic.Bible also contains a growing log of daily Mass readings and the “lectio divina,” a prayerful way of reading Scripture, in English and Spanish. A list of licensed publishers of Catholic Bibles is coming soon.
The Catholic.Bible site also has links to the USCCB website’s Bible drop-down menu, which includes links to the entire Bible through each book and chapter, the daily readings in English and Spanish, audio recordings of Bible passages, tips for understanding the Bible, video reflections and more.
“The .Bible top-level domain is a trusted online source for all things Bible,” the USCCB said in a news release announcing the new domain. “The mission of .Bible is to encourage Bible engagement, translation, innovation and global partnerships so that all people may experience the life-changing message that the Bible gives us.”
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
