Absolutely. It WILL, however, help us with the right disposition, with infused graces, etc. etc. so that we wilklbe more moved to study and our ears will be all the more open to hear the Word.
And, on a more mundane level, with Mass and office, one finds that especially the psalms but also paragraphs from Scripture have burrowed into our hearts ....

I am utterly convinced this is a crucial truth!
No Catholic should ever leave for a "Bible Church" without consulting a scripturally literate, non-clerical, Catholic. Using the scripture to challenge the authority of the Catholic Church is ALWAYS a case of "a 'little knowledge' can be dangerous."
"Passing judgement" on the Catholic Church using the Bible is as supercilious and naive as "correcting" great literature using a grammar text.
