Mother Teodora contributes to Archdiocese of Perugia's Biblical programme

Mother Teodora is 6th from the left next to Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, President of the Pontifical Council for Culture.
One of our clergy in Italy, the Revd Mother Teodora Tosatti, has been invited in her capacity as a Biblical theologian, to be part of the Biblical Apostolate Sector of the Archdiocese of Perugia. This is a significant ecumenical development and is a wonderful testimony to Dr Tosatti's own scholarship, and her ecumenical commitment. The Biblical Apostolate Sector (Settore di Apostolato Biblico) was established in 2016 by decree of the Archbishop of Perugia, HE Cardinal Gualtiero Bassetti.

The Apostolate seeks to promote Biblical knowledge at every level of the Church, deepening the understanding of God's Word for the Christian life, through the sacred liturgy, catechesis, prayer and study.

We are honoured that one of our own priests, Mtr Teodora, is part of this great initiative. She is seen in these photos with Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, President of the Pontifical Council for Culture who visited the Biblical Apostolate Sector recently and gave an address on the Book of Daniel in which he stated how we can learn from Daniel, a young person living in turbulent times, who commits himself to justice in the face of corruption and despair.
