Fruit-Bearing Bible Reading

“To read the Bible detached from the magisterium, detached from the Eucharistic liturgy of the Church, is like a botanist who rips up a plant by the roots, takes it into the lab, puts it under a microscope, then wonders why it’s dying,” Hahn told OSV. “Only when we read the Bible within the whole tradition and the life of the Church can it bear the fruit it’s meant to bear, both in the Church and our lives.”

I found an interesting article about a renewal of Scripture study within the Catholic Church.  I found the above quote a poignant warning against private interpretations of the Bible.
