Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

Coming Soon! Bible Study Listings

September 3rd, 2017, Promulgated by Diane Harris

Bible studies in the Catholic tradition are not well-publicized. By the time we learn of one in which we might be interested, we’ve usually missed at least a few sessions. For the most part, such notices get buried as a page 3 insertion from time to time in Church bulletins.

ScreenShot702Under Canon Law and under the exhortations of Dei Verbum (Vatican II), the Faithful do have certain rights of access to the bible and for proper learning of the message of God to His people. We’ll be covering excerpts of that teaching in a later posting. For now, we are just asking readers to send (or provide as comments to this post) information on any scripture study of which you may be aware and which you believe will be consistent with Catholic Teaching. We’d like to compile a wide area list  especially in this Year of the Eucharist in the Rochester Diocese. We believe it will help conserve pastoral resources, and build networking among the laity.

Cleansing Fire plans to publish a list of bible studies intended to be in the Catholic Tradition, wherever they may be held in the Diocese of Rochester, including in people’s homes. Please mention which book(s) of the bible will be studied, dates, time and place of meetings, contact information and cost, if any. If there is a leader, please identify, and mention background if applicable. If it is a community study group without a leader, or using a DVD + discussion, it would be helpful to know that as well.

We can’t all be missionaries, but we can help to spread the Word of God.

Peace to all!

    I am enthusiastic about the DVD Bible Study series entitled, ” The Bible and The Virgin Mary”.
    ( )
    We will be viewing awe inspiring DVD’s, utilizing a professionally designed workbook ($20 cost if one chooses to order it), sharing prayer requests and discussing the video study topics on Mondays starting 9/11/17 at Saint the Evangelist Church Greece.

    This study will prove to be dynamic as we grow in our knowledge of Sacred Scripture and deepen our understanding of the riches of Catholic faith in the Son of God Our Savior. We will be reading portions of the Bible from the heart of the Church engaging both Old and New Testaments. Our professional teachers from St. Paul Center For Biblical Theology, by means of the DVD videos, will show us how the Church interprets the Word of God examining the Blessed Virgin Mary’s role in salvation history as the New Eve, the ark of the new covenant and Queen Mother. A St. John’s parishioner with many years teaching experience will facilitate our meetings, prayer sharing and topic discussions.

    Mondays, 9:15am to 12 noon commencing 9/11 in the Church meeting room in St. John the Evangelist Church 2400 West Ridge Rd.
    Contact Dominick Anthony Zarcone, for any questions

    I am glad that you published this exhortation. I, for one, would really be interested in a Bible Study that is grounded solidly.

    I am hoping readers begin posting available Bible Studies.
