Is It Against Canon Law To Read Unapproved Bible Translations?

Full Question

Is it against canon law to read, review, and use for reference other translations of the Bible not explicitly approved by the Church?

Answer

Catholics can use “unapproved” translations for their personal use.  Obviously, it’s recommended to use an approved translation to avoid theological errors, but it is not forbidden to use unapproved translations. The Church only requires approved translations for its liturgies.

Fr. Charles Grondin
