Sunday of the Word of God

On the feast of St Jerome, Pope Francis issued an Apostolic Letter, Aperuit Illis, instituting the Sunday of the Word of God. It will be marked in January each year on the 3rd Sunday of Ordinary Time.
The Holy Father had proposed the idea at the conclusion of the Year of Mercy when he wrote: “a Sunday given over entirely to the word of God, so as to appreciate the inexhaustible riches contained in that constant dialogue between the Lord and his people.”
The document provides a summary of the Church’s teaching on Scripture and the place of Scripture within the Liturgy.
