Can every passage of the Bible be understood in all four different senses (-CCC)?

Every passage certainly has a literal meaning. I would have to think about it with respect to the others, but my initial reaction is that they do.

I would say it is a firm and unequivocal 'no', after all, take a verse like Matthew 21:17 "and leaving them, he went out to the city of Bethany and lodged there', it is difficult of a noncontrived interpretation of that verse other than the strictly literal one.

Origen would take that as a dare.

Besides, that's a verse, not a passage.

A distinction without a difference

Check the Catena Aurea for Matthew. There are indeed extended senses of the verse.

It’s online in English, Latin and Greek!

I would think that it would depend on the genre. Psalms and Proverbs have more of a moral sense, and Daniel and Revelation have more of an anagogical sense. The CCC groups the 3 Spiritual senses together, so while all of Scripture has both a literal and a spiritual sense, I don't know that you can necessarily apply all 3 of the Spiritual senses equally.

But the Psalms definitely have an allegorical and an anagogical sense too (at least certain psalms). My initial reaction to the OP would be, "Not necessarily." Maybe not every verse/passage has all three spiritual senses, but I don't think looking at a passage, I would ever be able to determine it didn't have one of them. I may tend to see one of the senses in a verse, but it may have other senses that I can't see.
