March 08, 2010
As part of the continental mission launched by the bishops of Latin America in 2007, he Brazilian bishops’ conference will distribute one million Bibles to families that cannot afford them.
“The Word of God is a letter of love to his people,” said Father Altevie Silva, director of the Bishops' Commission for Pastoral Ministry and Missionary Action. “Thus, in the Brazilian context of poverty and misery in which many cannot even afford to feed themselves, the “1 Million Bibles Campaign” tends to satisfy the desire of the Word for those who cannot afford it.”
