“When the Sacred Scriptures are read in the Church, God himself speaks to his people, and Christ, present in his word, proclaims the Gospel.” (General Instruction of the Roman Missal, no 29)
The Lector proclaims the first and second readings from Sacred Scripture. He may also announce the Intentions and, if not done by the cantor, may read the Psalm.
“Ask the Holy Spirit to be with you, that His flame be bright in your heart as you joyfully proclaim His Word.”
