Workbook for Lectors, Gospel Readers, and Proclaimers of the Word® provides
the ongoing instruction and advice that readers need. Not only does it
assist them in preparing their assigned reading on a specific occasion,
but when ministers of the Word read this resource every week as a way of
reflecting on and learning about the Scriptures, it strengthens their
proclamation skills and deepens their spiritual lives so that they can
touch the hearts of the assembly with their reading.
Workbook contains the readings in large print for practice,
with words in bold indicating suggestions for emphasis, commentaries
that give background and explain the meaning of the reading, margin
notes with pronunciation guides and tips for proclamation, and the
psalms for meditation and context. Workbook's introduction offers
orientation to the ministry, catechesis about the place of the readings
in the Mass, and for those parishes that want to adopt the practice on
special occasions, links to audio files demonstrating chanted
introductions and closings for the readings.
Available in Spanish also.
