"The Scriptures are shallow enough for a babe to come and drink without fear of drowning and deep enough for theologians to swim in without ever reaching the bottom...Ignorance of the scriptures is ignorance of Christ."-( St. Jerome) Do we immerse ourselves in God's Word as much as we immerse ourselves in other endeavors? How attentive do we listen to the scriptures proclaimed in Mass? Sometimes our excuse is that we don't understand. If this is so, then ask the Holy Spirit to give you the gift of understanding. It is a fact that we can read or hear the same passage many times over and find deeper meaning than before. Not only are we to read the scriptures but more importantly we need to pray with the Word of God. This means to talk to God about what you read and apply his Word to your life here and now. St Paul reminds us: "All Scripture, having been divinely inspired, is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in justice so that the man of God may be perfect, having been trained for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
