The Bible Is Different (Quote)

“[T]he Sacred Scripture is not like other books. Dictated by the Holy Ghost, it contains things of the deepest importance, which in many instances are most difficult and obscure.  To understand and explain such things there is always required the ‘coming’ of the same Holy Spirit; that is to say, His light and His grace; and these as the Royal Psalmist so frequently insists, are to be sought by humble prayer and guarded by holiness of life.”

Pope Leo XIII from Providentissimus Deus, Encyclical on the Study of Holy Scripture,  # 5, 1893.
