bible"The Church forcefully and specifically exhorts all the Christian faithful...to learn the surpassing knowledge of Jesus Christ by frequent reading of the divine Scriptures.  Ignorance of the Scriptures is ignorance of Christ." (Catechism of the Catholic Church, section 133).

"[The chair of Peter] also teaches that Divine inspiration extends to every part of the Bible without the slightest exception, and that no error can occur in the inspired text:  It would be wholly impious to limit inspiration to certain portions only of Scripture or to concede that the sacred authors themselves could have erred."  (The papal encyclical Spiritus Paraclitus, section 21).
