I once heard that the Bible stands for Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. "Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ" is a great quote attributed to Saint Jerome. It is a good idea to read the bible and pray with it. You can access the Revised Edition of the New American Bible for free by clicking here. You can also buy the Ebook version on Kindle and Google Play. Make sure that the bible you are using is a Catholic Bible. When in doubt ask a Catholic Priest.
