Welcome to this website dedicated to, 'The God who Speaks' in Portsmouth Diocese. This is an initiative being carried out across all the Catholic diocese of England and Wales. Cardinal Vincent Nichols describes this as a time:
'God becomes known through the dialogue which he desires
to have with us.'
Pope Benedict XVI
' ... to embark on a creative and deeper engagement with the Holy Scriptures across the life of each diocese. Please pray that we may all be enriched and renewed by the living Word of God. Then we shall be moved afresh to share the love of Christ to the ends of the earth.'
'The Bible is inspired by the Holy Spirit. It contains and expresses in the language and concepts of its day the teaching & saving truth that God wants to communicate to us.'
