The Good Shepherd

Catholic Primary School

“I am the Good Shepherd; I know my own and my own know me”. John 10:14"

The Year of the Word

 

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales have designated 2020 as ‘The God Who Speaks’: A Year of the Word to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Verbum Domini – Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation on ‘The Word of the Lord’, and the 1600th anniversary of death of St Jerome, who translated the Bible into Latin. Therefore, 2020 will be a year of celebrating, living and sharing God’s word, through a range of events, activities and resources, available across the Diocese of Westminster. We are invited to listen afresh to the word of God as did Our Blessed Lady at the Annunication, to encounter anew the presence of that word, and to proclaim it afresh in the Church and the World.

 

 30th September, the Feast of St. Jerome, we celebrated the official launch of the God Who Speaks-The Year of the Word.

If you have time watch Cardinal Nichols in the National Gallery offering his reflections  on this painting by the Italian Renaissance artist Masaccio titled ‘Saints Jerome and John the Baptist’.
