11.17.15–>”Scripture is not God”

Scripture is not God, but a privileged place to meet God. However, one must pay attention to Scripture in the same way that in the contemplation of nature one has to pay attention to trees or sunsets or mountains. One must have a contemplative attitude toward Scripture, let the Scriptures be themselves, listen to them, and ask that God reveal self while we are listening.
