We are going to share today is what national day ? International Day of the Bible November 24 is an initiative originated in the United States and more particularly the association of the Bible which wished to promote this day from November 24, 2014.
International Day of the Bible November 24
We must keep in mind this American origin to understand this day whose goal is to encourage the reading of the Bible. The stated intention is clearly proselytizing and the organizers do not hesitate to affirm that it will also be an opportunity to bring together those who love God and want to thank Him.
From Saint Jerome to the World Day
Another world day makes an explicit reference to the Bible. This is the World Day of Translation celebrated on the day of Saint Jerome, patron saint of translators and the first translator of the Latin Bible.
