Faded Levi’s and Bibles

Does anyone else remember scuffing up their jeans to make them look worn? Jeff compares the desire for that well-used look to our Bibles. If worn jeans tell the story of where you’ve been, then a worn Bible signifies that you’ve walked with the Scriptures.

Deuteronomy 17:19 — “It shall be with him and he shall read it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, by carefully observing all the words of this law and these statutes.”

Joshua 1:8 — “This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall have good success.”

Revelations 1:3 — “Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near.”

Matthew 9:14-17 — “Then the disciples of John came to him, saying, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?” And Jesus said to them, “Can the wedding guests mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? The days will come, when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast. And no one puts a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch tears away from the garment, and a worse tear is made. Neither is new wine put into old wineskins; if it is, the skins burst, and the wine is spilled, and the skins are destroyed; but new wine is put into fresh wineskins, and so both are preserved.”

  1. Let the students see you use your Bible and the Catechism, not just your notes…can you comment on why we don’t use our Bibles during the Catholic Mass, instead of (typically) just the Missal? I understand that the Bible readings are in the Missal, but why not use our Bibles for those readings?
