“Man does not Live by Bread Alone”: The Catholic Biblical Federation Celebrates its 40th Anniversary

The Catholic Biblical Federation was established by Pope Paul VI on April 16, 1969 to foster and promote an awareness of the unique significance of Sacred Scripture at all levels of ecclesial life. With its roots tracing back to the Second Vatican Council it sees itself as the advocate of the Bible in the Catholic Church.

The Catholic Biblical Federation represents the worldwide multiplicity of the Catholic faith. Its more than 330 member institutions in 134 countries of the world are committed to insuring that people can experience the life-giving message of the Bible in their daily lives.

Rooted in the Catholic Church, the Catholic Biblical Federation avows itself to ecumenical and interconfessional dialogue. It promotes tolerance and respect for other cultures and religions and is actively engaged on behalf of reconciliation, justice and peace.

Through its commitment to the Gospel, the Catholic Biblical Federation tries to play an active role in building a world in which the values of love of God and neighbor, of justice and responsibility are the core of all activity. (CE)
