It is no secret, especially to those who keep an eye open for studies on faith participation, that these days for the Christian faith present a challenge. It is simple. For more and more people, especially the young, Christian faith is simply not a factor in their lives.
Today is the first time we will celebrate the Sunday of the Word of God. Just as we celebrate special Sundays for the Body and Blood of Christ, and the Trinity, Pope Francis thought it good that we focus one Sunday with special emphasis on the Word of God. Do you have a bible in your home? Do you read it? Do you study it? Do you pray with it? Do you share the Word with others? Go. Teach. Baptize. This is our baptismal call. And the Word of God is the story we share.
