The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales has designated 2020 as ‘The God Who Speaks’: A Year of the Word 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 the death of St Jerome, who translated the Bible into Latin. Therefore, during this very special year we will have the opportunity to celebrate, live and share in the joy of scripture, and in particular the good news of Matthew’s gospel.
