The Word of the Lord

imagesLector: One who proclaims the Scripture readings used in the Liturgy of the Word from the official lectionary. Time commitment: Weekly, at a scheduled mass. Qualifications: Able to speak publicly. Possession of good vocal variety and quality to bring to the proclamation of the Word. Development of an understanding of the Scriptures to be proclaimed.

Psalm 95:8     If today you hear His voice, harden not your heart. The “call” came in mid-June.  I answered.

Psalm 19:14    Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord. As I approach the altar and bow with highest reverence, I am filled with awe.

I Corinthians 12:4-11 There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. There are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. The manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the same Spirit, to another the workings of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each on individually as He wills.  When a gift is given, you must accept it willingly, graciously. You must share that gift, pass it along and be grateful.
