Who says CATHOLICS don't read the BIBLE??!!!
**A bible study group from the Catholic perspective**
*This Bible Study group is free to all members, what other way would the Lord ask we have it*
Our bible study group will begin starting with the New Testament (details for Study of the Old Testament to follow) using the traditional Douay Rheims bible (for those who do not have the book version of the DRB click this link for the online version :
For each chapter read there will be discussion/interpretation from the Catholic perspective lead by our very own Matthew Olson.
I have alotted up to 2 hours of bible study time each week, according to the E.S.T. zone (unless otherwise noted) Group members are encouraged to participate in volunteer take turn reading and question/response commentary (keeping it brief for other members to equally be allowed a turn).
Chapter numbers and interpretation summaries will be noted here for every preceding Bible Study session.Thus allowing members to catch up to subsequent Bible Study sessions.
Note***We will begin and end group with prayer as follows:
God, You have made the heavens and the earth.You have revealed Your beauty in creation and inspired the book that we are now about to study. Please help us now as we read together. Take us deeper into understanding more about You and Your love for us..
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of thy faithful.... Amen.
Lord, Your word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. Thank You that we can live in Your light and walk in Your truth. May the things that You have revealed and thoughts that we have shared dwell in our hearts and stir us to action. We ask all this in the precious name of Jesus.
Hail Mary, full of Grace, the Lord is with thee.... Amen.
I will be using oovoo video chat a free friendly vid chat program where up to twelve parties can attend at a time
