Guide for Lectors
Paul Turner and Virginia Meagher
You’ll want all of your lectors to read this new guide. Effective for training those new to the ministry and for rejuvenating the work of veterans, the book can be used by individuals or groups. It gives lectors the background and tools they need to study, pray, and proclaim scripture well, it offers sound advice for dealing with the practical everyday challenges of parish liturgies, and it nurtures spiritual growth in the minister.
Inside you’ll find a pastoral, inviting format and style; a basic theological foundation of the ministry; liturgical catechesis about the minister’s role during the Mass; a brief history of the ministry; encouragement for deepening the spirituality of the minister; generous quotations from the documents of the Church; detailed, practical instruction for carrying out the ministry; suggestions for further formation; frequently asked questions; advice for responding to unusual or difficult circumstances; a resource list; a glossary; questions for reflection or discussion; and prayers.
