Sunday of the Word of God Video Series

In 2019, Pope Francis established the Sunday of the Word of God to be celebrated each year on the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time. As the Holy Father stated in his apostolic letter instituting the observance, “Devoting a specific Sunday of the liturgical year to the word of God can enable the Church to 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” (Aperuit illus, no. 2).

To celebrate the “Sunday of the Word of God,” the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has prepared a series of videos in English and Spanish by renowned Catholic biblical scholars. The videos will address the Bible’s authorship, the canon of Scripture, a Catholic approach to reading the Bible, the practice of lectio divina, and the synoptic Gospels. You can access the videos, along with discussion guides and suggestions for further reading at: Sunday of the Word of God (
