“Romans reveals that salvation is not merely the removal of the guilty verdict: it is about entering into Christ’s life, death and resurrection and sharing in His divine life.”

“The Bible is at the heart of our Faith and our relationship with God. Much more than a book, it is a place where our Father comes to meet us and speaks to us with love” (Dei Verbum 21).
