Hello. Apologies if this should be in Sacred Scripture; it does deal somewhat with my scrupulosity, so I figured Moral Theology would be the best bet.
I enjoy reading the Bible out loud to my mother, and we’ve finished the entire New Testament up to Revelation. Now, my study Bible from a recent Confirmation class has what I’d call “headings”. For example, in Romans chapter 15, verse 22-33, just before verse 22, there is a bold heading that says “Paul’s Plan; Need for Prayers”. Additionally, in the same chapter, just before verse 14, it says “VII: Conclusion”, separate from the rest of the text, to help divide the book into several distinct parts. Are these headings and the “Conclusion” stuff actually included by the Church, or were they added to the study Bibles to make them easier to understand? Should I say them while reading Revelation aloud? I’ve been reading them aloud thus far, but I tend to be a little scrupulous when it comes to Revelation. I intend to talk to a priest about it, but thanks for any answers.
