A Lector’s sacred duty is not just reading scriptural texts. It is also to reflect on the Word of God, understand its meaning and then proclaim it to the congregation.
During the training, our youths were taught on the process, reading from the microphone and breaking of the word to understand more on the scriptures in the bible.
“Through the Lector Ministry, I feel encouraged to read the bible. This helps me understand the word of the Lord. We also get to reflect on the weekly readings and gospel, and through it, I gain a deeper understanding of my faith, and what the Lord is trying to convey through his word.” – Emmanuel Luis
“The training has helped me understand what God is trying to say to me and I have learnt how to proclaim His Word appropriately. I hope to have a closer relationship with God and be a more enthusiastic Catholic, as I gain interest in the Bible and begin to read it more.” – Chantrice Miranda
