Workbook for Lectors, Gospel Readers, and Proclaimers of the WordŽ 2015 USA
Marielle Frigge, OSB; Daniel J. Scholz; Graziano Marcheschi, MA, DMIN
Workbook for Lectors, Gospel Readers, and Proclaimers of the WordŽ can provide 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.
This resource contains the readings in large print for easy 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 now the Responsorial Psalm is also included for meditation and context. Workbook's introduction offers an orientation to this ministry of the Word and an overview of proclamation skills. For those parishes that want to adopt the practice on special occasions, links are provided to audio files demonstrating chanted introductions and closings for the readings.
