Calendar of events for the Zambia Conference of Catholic Bishops (ZCCB) for the YEAR 2020.

The ZCCB has designated 2020 as “THE YEAR OF THE WORD OF GOD” to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Verbum Domini - Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation on ‘The Word of the Lord’, and the 1600th anniversary of death of St Jerome, who translated the Bible into Latin. Therefore, 2020 will be a year of sharing, celebrating and living, “THE GOD WHO SPEAKS: YEAR OF THE WORD OF GOD”, Ps 68:33
In relation Pope Francis announced the institution of the Third Sunday in Ordinary time as “Sunday of the Word of God”. C.f. Motuproprio, ApperuitIllis, #3. Consequently, I hereby declare that the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time is to be devoted to the celebration, study and dissemination of the word of God. This Sunday of the Word of God will thus be a fitting part of that time of the year when we are encouraged to strengthen our bonds with the Jewish people and to pray for Christian unity. This is more than a temporal coincidence: the celebration of the Sunday of the Word of God has ecumenical value, since the Scriptures point out, for those who listen, the path to authentic and firm unity.
