Posted on 09/10/2011 9:16:44 AM PDT by Salvation
Featured Term (selected at random):
One of the protocanonical writings of the Old Testament, narrating the story of a Bethlehem family in the time of the Judges. Its heroine is Ruth, daughter-in-law of Naomi. Although Ruth is a Moabite, she marries Boaz, a Jew, and becomes the great-grandmother of King David, of whose family Christ was born. The purpose of the book was twofold: to preserve the edifying story of David's ancestry, and to witness to the practice of extraordinary filial piety, rewarded by God.
Catholic Word of the Day links will be provided later by another FReeper. (Would anyone like to help with this?)

I have recently done a study of this book myself. There are so many levels of understanding to it. Some old cultural practices are quite interesting, and I’m sure that while I understand some of them, I know I am missing others.
Thanks for posting this!
