St. John’s Presents Bible to Congress in Honor of Pope’s Visit
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- St. John's Abbey and University had a gift for the Library of Congress in honor of Pope Francis' visit to the United States.
After the Pope's address to Congress, St. John's presented them with The St. John's Bible, which uses modern imagery like the Twin Towers, DNA strands, and photos from the Hubble Telescope to illustrate age-old values.
The bible will be displayed in the Library of Congress alongside other rare works, giving the public an opportunity to appreciate the impressive text for themselves.
The presentation of the St. John's Bible to Congress was made possible by the Minneapolis-based GHR Foundation.
