Read the Catechism in a Year

Andrea has done a wonderful job of breaking down the Catechism into manageable pieces for personal Bible study and devotion. I have been taking notes and here are some idea I jotted down so far:

"Still the Christian faith is not a 'religion of the book'. Christianity is the religion of the "Word" of God, not a written and mute word, but incarnate and living. If the Scriptures are not to remain a dead letter, Christ, the eternal Word of the living God, must through the Holy Spirit, open our minds to understandthe Scriptures.

"All Sacred Scripture is but one book, and that one book is Christ, because all divine Scripture speaks of Christ, all divine Scripture is fulfilled in Christ"
Hugh of St Victor

The New Testament lies hidden in the Old and the Old Testament is unveiled in the New.

Ignorance of Scriptures is ignorance of Christ
