How did the Second Vatican Council encourage interest in the Scriptures for Catholics?

Actually, the Scriptures have always been a major source of the Christian life for any Catholic worth the name. The Scriptures are a huge part of the Mass - nearly every single text of the Mass is taken directly from Scripture, keep in mind that it was the Catholic Church that wrote the Scriptures, preserved them, and determined infallibly which books were Scripture and which were not.

The Scriptures are not only a major portion of the Mass, but they make up practically the entire Breviary or Divine Office. But when Pope Pius XII issued DIVINO AFFLANTE SPIRITU in 1943, it gave Scripture study and history a much needed boost.

After the Second Vatican Council, as part of the renewal of the Liturgy, the Church opened the Scriptures up even further by spreading the Sunday readings over three years, and the weekday readings over two years. Thus any Catholic who attends daily Mass hears a major portion of the Scriptures, the highlights of the Old Testament, the complete Gospels, and nearly the complete New Testament over a period of three years,

The Second Vatican Council covered Holy Orders in Christus Dominus, Presbyterorum Ordinis, Optatam totius: Decree on the Pastoral Office of Bishops in the Church, Decree on the Ministry and Life of Priests, and Decree on the Training of Priests.

The Council covered the Nature of the priesthood, the place of priests in the world, and their functions as ministers of God's Word, of the Sacraments and the Eucharist, as rulers of God's people.
