Launching the Year of the Bible


The dynamism of the Daughters of St. Paul in Abidjan, Ivory Coast deserves attention. In addition to announcing the PF Year of the Bible in their 2020-2021 Liturgical Calendar, which has a circulation of about 30,000 copies, our sisters have also produced a series of radio programs on the Lectio Divina and a specific interview about the Bible Year on the most popular Catholic radio station in Abidjan.

Their opening of the Year was accompanied by two publications: the text Mary, Servant of the Lord and the Sterile Women of the Bible–an African rereading of some pages of the Word, and a Guide to the Lectio divina to make it accessible to all.

On 26 November, the Bible was enthroned in their book center, while on Sunday, 29 November, a solemn Mass was celebrated in Yopougon Cathedral, with great participation on the part of the faithful. T-Shirts and Polo shirts with the logo of the Bible Year were prepared for the occasion. The Liturgy was filmed and transmitted via Web.
