“The Holy Bible is like a mirror before our mind’s eye. In it we see our inner face. From the Scriptures we can learn our spiritual deformities and beauties. And there too we discover the progress we are making and how far we are from perfection.”
—Saint Gregory the Great

A beautiful Bible written in no nonsense language.
It is an excellent quality Bible. Very well made and a nice cover. Very pleased with this purchase.
Beautiful bible. Love the Burgundy color The print is easy to read, and it is a comfort to have in my home. Im gifting one for my brother as well. I believe having Jesuss words in red help to make clear his message clear to us.
Is it correct the this version that you have in promotion have Christs words in red?
Love this Bible, It's a great read.
Beautiful Catholic edition, easily readable, will be a treasured part of our family. Highly recommended.
I love the leatherette cover of this bible. the pages are a good weight and the text is very readable. This is my favorite translation of the bible and I will read it every day that it holds up... which should be awhile as it is very well built!
I love the Douay Rhiems translation, and this edition is beautiful. The cover is flexible like leather and seems very durable. I also like the color, not too red, more wine. It's a great size to carry with you too, and usually other people in the classes I attend have other translations, so this adds variety, and in my experience it has helped me understand the subtle meaning of some passages better. The language is different but I'venever had a problem understanding it. I thought the translation might be similar to the KJV, but It's totally different since this is a translation of the Latin Vulgate whereas KJV is a translation of the Greek Septuagint. Every serious Bible student should have this version as a compliment to other translations. It really adds depth to study comparatively.
Beautiful version of the only Bible Catholics can and should use.
