When the Scriptures are read in the Church, God himself speaks to His people, and Christ, present in His own Word, proclaims the Gospel. Therefore, all must listen with reverence to the readings from God’s word, for they make up an element of greatest importance in the Liturgy. General Instruction of the Roman Missal #29
Lectors are members of the Assembly who proclaim the Word in the first two Scripture readings. They also assist in creating a hospitable and prayerful environment by praying the Prayers of the Faithful. Training and preparation are necessary for those persons wishing to be Lectors.
