Lectors are God’s mouthpiece

St. Matthew the Evangelist400x575

By Fr. Ron Will CPPS

Scripture is a door through which you can experience God

“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of the one who brings good news, announcing salvation.” —Isaiah 52:7

God longs to speak to his people. Lectors are his mouthpiece.

If you’ve accepted the responsibility to be a lector, do you ever wonder if the people in your congregation are hearing God’s message when you read at Mass? Do they clearly understand the message?

Perhaps first you should ask yourself the same questions. Are you clearly understanding the message of God you’ve been entrusted with to proclaim?

How can the congregation understand the message if you don’t fully understand yourself what you are reading?

Now you have an opportunity to improve your understanding of the Gospel and your lector skills, with the workshop “A Day with the Sunday Gospels According to Matthew.” The Gospel of Matthew will be used throughout the liturgical year that begins on December 1, and the other readings in the lectionary are selected with the Gospel in mind. Therefore, gaining more knowledge about Matthew’s Gospel can help you better understand the readings you will be proclaiming throughout the year.

Come join us November 9. Full details are here.
