I guess as I did not learn much at the Catholic Church, neither did she !
You cant learn all you need with out a bible. And that is what went on at our
I know some Catholic Churches may be better then this !
But there is no reason that they should not have one !
The Litugy of the Church consists of the Bible! Just because it is printed in a liturgical form (Missal) does not make it any less the Holy Scriptures than a Bible on your lap. I've heard it said that we go through the complete Bible in any 3 year period.
But let's see though, at Mass we have the first reading which is from the Old Testament, the second reading from the New Testament, then we have a reading from the Holy Gospel. We have the "kiss" of peace, and you do remember the Holy Eucharist, don't you? St. Justin Martyr describes our worship service around 167AD and it is basically how we Catholics worship today. Look it up, you might find it interesting.
I know that it's not all your fault. I received the same poor teaching as regards the faith as you, and only rediscovered the great treasure of the Roman Church as an adult. I have been to other Christian worship services and besides Eastern Orthodoxy, nothing else comes close.
But don't believe that we don't have the Holy Bible. We certainly do and are encouraged to read it often. As I said before, the Liturgy IS the Bible, the living, active, alive bible, not just a book.
