Purpose: As ministers of the Word, Lectors are called to do what John the Baptist did. Proclaim over and over again, “Prepare the way of the Lord!” They are the herald’s voice crying out in the desert. “Make a straight path for the Lord.” The role of the Lector is to bring God’s Word in Scripture more easily into the lives of all who have ears to hear, namely the assembly. Therefore, they should strive to proclaim the Word of God in a way that touches the hearts of all who come to the Liturgy in the hope of challenging them to live that Word.
