The Bread of Life Catholic Bible Study – by Deacon Ken and Marie Finn

“Indeed, the word of God is living and effective, sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating even between soul and spirit, joints and marrow, and able to discern reflections and thoughts of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12


"Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do." Joshua 1:8 

 Available in English or Spanish.

To grow in a personal relationship with God, St. Dismas Guild encourages you to participate in The Bread of Life Catholic Bible Study workbook, written by our Founders Deacon Ken and Marie Finn, with written feedback from St. Mother Teresa and her sisters (Missionaries of Charity) and endorsed by St. John Paul II.

This workbook follows the Liturgical Calendar of the Church and helps prepare you for the upcoming Sunday Mass readings. There are 3 Cycles (A, B, and C) which correspond to the cycles of the Church Year. We began Cycle C at the end of November 2021.

Before you begin your bible study always remember to call upon the Holy Spirit to lead and guide you while you read the bible and work in your bible study workbook.

Pray the following prayer before reading scripture:
Father, I can’t understand your Word without your grace, I acknowledge my weakness so your power can reach perfection in me. Send your Holy Spirit to remind, teach, and guide me to the Truth. And may I share, as soon as possible, whatever you teach me. Amen.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
