Deep in Scripture

Ignorance of Scripture is Ignorance of Christ - St. Jerome

The Catholic Church has always venerated the divine Scriptures, and teaches that “Sacred Scripture is the speech of God as it is put down in writing under the breath of the Holy Spirit.” She also, “forcefully and specifically exhorts all the Christian faithful to learn ‘the surpassing knowledge of Jesus Christ’ (Phil. 3.8) by frequent reading of the divine Scriptures. ‘Ignorance of the Scriptures is ignorance of Christ.’” (From the Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation, nos. 9, 21, and 25)

CHNetwork’s "Deep in Scripture” program hosted by Marcus Grodi is broadcast on EWTN Radio 2 on Saturdays at 11am and Sundays at 2pm (eastern time) and the recorded program can be listened to here on our website.
