The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) has created a reflection on Verbum Domini.

“Following two important events for the Church in 2012-2013, the Synod on the New Evangelization and the Year of Faith, the Commission for Justice and Peace of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) offers a short reflection on Verbum Domini and its social teaching. The Apostolic Exhortation Verbum Domini was published in 2010 after the Synod on the Word of God, held in October 2008. In the introduction of their reflection, the Bishops of the Commission write that “to enter fully into the dynamic of the New Evangelization and the Year of Faith, we need a profound reception of the message of the 2008 Synod and the exhortation that resulted from it.” They continue by saying, “we hope that we can all come to a deeper understanding of what it means to truly be evangelized and to truly be people of faith, so that our proclamation of Jesus Christ may not be in word only, but also in action.”” -CCCB website
