True knowledge of Scripture

The true knowledge of the Scriptures is that of the heart, which is born of daily contact with it, from Lectio Divina practiced in the footsteps of the great tradition of the Fathers, from deep meditation which gradually but effectively conforms the soul to the Gospel, transforming each priest into a “living Gospel”. We know well that “the Gospel is not just a word: Christ himself is the Gospel” (Benedict XVI, Homily 12/09/09), and we are called to conform ourselves to Him.  Mauro Piacenza
