Catholic Bible Apps for Sunday of the Word of God

Pope Francis has decreed that the Third Sunday of Ordinary Time in the Roman calendar will be a day set aside each year to read, study and reflect on Scripture. This year, “Sunday of the Word of God” will be January 26.

This is an ideal time to download a Catholic Bible app from our tremendous list of quality Bible apps we have compiled. Many are FREE and some even come with audio!

From the Catholic Sentinal:

The newly established “Sunday of the Word of God” is an invitation to Catholics across the world to deepen their appreciation, love and faithful witness to God and his word, Pope Francis said.

By papal decree, the third Sunday in Ordinary Time — Jan. 26 this year — is to be observed as a special day devoted to “the celebration, study and dissemination of the word of God.”

A day dedicated to the Bible will help the church “experience anew how the risen Lord opens up for us the treasury of his word and enables us to proclaim its unfathomable riches before the world,” the pope said in the document establishing the special Sunday observance.

Dioceses and parishes have been invited to respond with creative initiatives, helpful resources and renewed efforts for helping Catholics engage more deeply with the Bible at church and in their lives.
