Today we celebrate Sunday of the Word, with the verse “Abide in my word” (John 8: 31)

The Cathedral Chapter meets each year in celebration of this day and, to that end, the Great Chapel and the Chapel of the Evangelists will remain open and specially decorated throughout the day.

The decoration of the Chapel of the Evangelists stands out due to the extraordinary presence of the Holy Bible, which belongs to the Capitular and Columbian Library, donated by brothers Morón y Cansino.

This day was established by Pope France on 30 September of 2019, through his Apostolic Letter, Aperuit illis, issued motu proprio, in which he announced, “I declare that the 3rd Sunday in ordinary time will be dedicated to the celebration, reflection, and dissemination of the Word of God.” The goal of this initiative is to specifically devote one Sunday of the liturgical year to the Word of God so that the world might come to know it.
