Here are some links and resources to keep the fire burning beyond Catholic Bible Sunday. 

Scriptural Resources

Here are a few handy Scriptural resources from Bible Society.

The Gospels

It's a good idea to have a small Gospel, a pocket-sized Gospel, that you can carry around with you, and to read a short passage from it at any time of the day. At any time in the day I take the Gospel out of my pocket and read a little something, a short passage. There we find Jesus, Who speaks to us, in the Gospel!

Pope Francis, 16 March 2014

A small, portable pocket-sized edition of the Gospels that make an ideal give-away to young people.Includes an extra colour section on the background and meaning of the Gospels to help new readers understand the context around Scriptures.

Price: £4.99

The Gospels (Gift Edition)

A classically beautiful, large-sized edition of the Gospels. An elegant gift for those receiving sacraments of Initiation, Marriage or Ordination to the Deaconate, and an appropriate edition for use in Funeral liturgies.
