I'm Catholic, but I've never read a Bible in my life. Is this a shame?

    Not necessarily because there are people out there who have read the Bible and still do horrible things to other human beings.

    12. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

    Nah, the church could care less about any member reading the bible.  Have you noticed the little books called missile placed on the back of pews.  The church prints those out each year, and that is all that is used in a Catholic church.  Even the priests just read from the missiles.

    It actually is a shame. When the Bible is one of the most available books on the market, you are relying on the interpretation of others to tell you what it says, and what is means. Having gone to a Catholic High School, after attending my Parish's Grade School, I understand the weight and the authority that the priesthood holds over the R.C. Church members. But studying Acts in my junior year in Religion Class, awakened my interest in God's Word. The depths of it go far beyond what you will ever learn at Mass.

    If you attend Mass regularly, you hear almost the whole Bible read to you every couple of years. And if you don't attend Mass, why do you call yourself Catholic?

    Let me ask you a question. Does catholic that you have been taught by tell you that you don't need to be baptized by the Holy Spirit? If so then you should read the bible because it does.
