PALM BEACH GARDENS - For Liliana Soto-Cabrera, listening to and reading scripture is a way of understanding who she is and navigating the seasons of life.
“For every difficult or joyous time in our lives, there is scripture that shares in our struggles and our happiness,” said Soto-Cabrera, faith formation coordinator of the Diocese of Palm Beach.
Soto-Cabrera reflected on the meaning of scripture in her life in preparation for Sunday of the Word of God, Jan. 24, 2021. In 2019, Pope Francis released an apostolic letter titled Aperuit Illis in which he dedicated a Sunday entirely to the Word of God so as to “appreciate the inexhaustible riches contained in that constant dialogue between the Lord and his people.”
“When my grandmother passed away, we reflected on Psalm 23:4, ‘Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff comfort me.’ Although this was a very difficult moment, I didn’t feel fear of death because I knew Grandma leaned on scripture and the words were real to me.”
