Here in the Diocese of Austin, the Bishop has made it the "Year of the Word." As in years past we have had a church-wide year of the eucharist and so on, Bishop Aymond has decided that this should be a year focused on scripture. I think this is a wonderful idea to remind Catholics that, as Dr. Scott Hahn says "The bible is a precious family heirloom. It is made for catholics, by catholics." In other words, scripture is just as important to us as catholics as it is for anybody else.
