Hmmmm…where does it say in the Bible that we ought to have pews, let alone Bibles in the pews?
Nonetheless, Bibles are available (free) for those who don’t have their own.
What they may be implying is that Catholics are not encouraged to read their Bibles. I think there’s plenty of evidence to the contrary throughout history. Observe…
The Church has been constant in it’s teaching that “Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.” (St. Jerome)
St. John Chrysostom (344/354 -407 AD)
“This is what has ruined everything, your thinking that the reading of scripture is for monks only, when you need it more than they do. Those who are placed in the world, and who receive wounds every day have the most need of medicine. So, far worse even than not reading the scriptures is the idea that they are superfluous. Such things were invented by the devil.” (St. John’s Second Homily on Matthew)
Pope St. Gregory I (died 604 AD)
“The Emperor of heaven, the Lord of men and of angels, has sent you His epistles for your life’s advantage—and yet you neglect to read them eagerly. Study them, I beg you, and meditate daily on the words of your Creator. Learn the heart of God in the words of God, that you may sigh more eagerly for things eternal, that your soul may be kindled with greater longings for heavenly joys.” (Letters, 5, 46)
St. Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153 AD)
“The person who thirsts for God eagerly studies and meditates on the inspired Word, knowing that there, he is certain to find the One for whom he thirsts.”
St. Teresa of Avila (1515 -1582 AD)
“all the harm that comes to the world comes from its not knowing the truths of Scripture in clarity and truth… To me it seemed I had always believed this, and that all the faithful believed it.”
The publisher of the Cologne [German] Bible  writes:
“All Christians should read the Bible with piety and reverence, praying the Holy Ghost, who is the inspirer of the Scriptures, to enable them to understand . . . The learned should make use of the Latin translation of St. Jerome; but the unlearned and simple folk, whether laymen or clergy . . . should read the German translations now supplied, and thus arm themselves against the enemy of our salvation.”
The publisher of the Koberger Vulgate of 1477 stated:
“The Holy Scriptures excel all the learning of the world . . . All believers should watch zealously and exert themselves unremittingly to understand the contents of these most useful and exalted writings, and to retain them in the memory. Holy Scripture is that beautiful garden of Paradise in which the leaves of the commandments grow green, the branches of evangelical counsel sprout . . .”
