It is worth having Verbum (or Logos) open beside your favorite blog if you know how to simplify finding references by using the Command box. To illustrate, I have chosen this example blog. The references I am demonstrating opening are marked by red underlines.

To open a Bible reference:

  1. In the command box, type the word "open", the name or abbreviated name of the translation you wish to open, the word "to", the reference to which you wish to open.
  2. If you have typed everything correctly, you will see the command you want in the drop-down menu. If you see only Search options, Verbum has not be able to interpret your command.
  3. Hit enter and the resource will open to the requested location.

Bible abbreviations that are of particular interest to Verbum users:

  • D-R Douay-Rheims Bible
  • NAB The New American Bible
  • NABRE New American Bible Revised Edition
  • NJB New Jerusalem Bible
  • NRSVCE New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition
  • RSVCE Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition
  • RSV2CE Revised Standard Version Second Catholic Edition

Accessing Church Documents

Opening the Catechism of the Catholic Church is as simple as opening the Scripture. The command "open CCC to 35" works. However, trying to access papal documents is not so simple because Verbum treats the documents as a set of documents. The "work around" is to give the document name twice, one to identify the document and a second time to identify where in the document to open.

  1. In the Command box, type the word "open", follow by the name of the document, the word "to", the name of the document again and finally the paragraph number to which you wish to open.
  2. If you have typed everything correctly, you will see the command you want in the drop-down menu. If you see only Search options, Verbum has not be able to interpret your command.
  3. Hit enter and the resource will open to the requested location.
