Workbook for Lectors, Gospel Readers, and Proclaimers of the Word® 2019 Canada
Workbook Canada can provide the ongoing instruction
and advice that readers need. Not only does it assist them in preparing
their assigned reading from the Canadian Lectionary 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.
