Hearing Francis: Pocket Gospels
Pope Francis has repeated his desire to see Catholics read the Bible daily, particularly the Gospels. (He did it over a week ago, again, at the conference with the Charismatic Renewal. As mentioned a few posts back, he even gave away free Gospels at a recent Regina Caeli). The USCCB has heard the call as well and are making a pocket edition of the NAB Gospels and Acts available in the coming weeks.
So, have you answered the Holy Father's call? If so, which edition do you use? I really like the Ignatius Press RSV-2CE Gospels and Psalms. It is beautifully made, contains two ribbons, and the print is very dark. That is really all you can ask for in a pocket Gospels including the Psalms. I had the first edition which came out in 2006, but recently purchased a new one. This one has darker print, the paper is not glossy, and it was made in the United States.
