Bored?

Why not pick up the Bible and read a book? Seriously. Not my idea.

Why not discover a few of the books of the Bible that are not commonly known? Or perhaps from which we have heard an occasional passage during the Liturgy but which we have never read in their entirety?

Close your browser. You can get through something like Ephesians or Philippians in 15-20 minutes.

Or a Gospel like Mark’s in under an hour. (Reading a Gospel cover-to-cover, the way it was meant to be read, is always super-enriching.)

Or pick 3 random chapters from First Corinthians. Guaranteed that one of them will speak to you in a special/personal way.

Or the Song of Songs from the OT. Read it as a love song, then reread it as God’s (the bridegroom’s) love for the Church (or you, the bride).

Or Acts of the Apostles if you’re into heroism. Or Judges if you love stories. Or… anything.

You know you won’t regret it.

Just a thought. God bless!
