Prayer nook

March 2021

In preparation for the Plenary Assembly of the Catholic Biblical Federation in November 2021, we invite all members and friends of our Federation to pray for God’s blessing, the Holy Spirit’s guidance, and the intercession of Mary, the Mother of the Word, for all its regions and their activities.

Presentation of the Region

CBF Central Europe Subregion gathers German speaking countries and those of Eastern Europe belonging to the former communist bloc. The Katholische Bibelwerk (German Catholic Biblical Association) active in this region, Vatican-based Office for Common Bible Work (a department of the Secretariat for Promoting Christian of Unity), and other involved Catholic institutions, established the Catholic Biblical Federation in April 1969. Today, the CBF members of Central Europe are most active in sponsoring and supporting the General Secretariat and projects of other Federation’s regions. The greatest challenge lies in enlivening of the biblical ministry in the countries which, in the past years, were under the anti-Christian communist control. Thus the main goal for the Federation’s activity in this region is to ensure that biblical pastoral ministry plays an integral role in the pastoral programs of the European Bishop’s conferences.

26 Mar 2021

The feast of the Annunciation of the Lord, also celebrated as the feast of the Incarnation of the Word, is rich in meaning and has multiple dimensions. Surely, it is a Christological feast. However, its meaning and message is inseparably tied with the Virgin Mary, because Mary of Nazareth is its main protagonist. It is, therefore, the feast of the Virgin Mary as a person who played a unique and essential part in God's work of salvation, carried our by Christ.
