The Word of the Lord at Mass: Understanding the Lectionary introduces the book from which Catholics hear Scripture proclaimed throughout the year. Accenting the vital link between the Liturgy of the Word and the Liturgy of the Eucharist, this inviting little book presents the Lectionary as a book designed to be proclaimed in the liturgy, to give voice to the living Christ speaking to his people. It explains what a Lectionary is, how it developed over centuries, and how our current Lectionary grew out of the Second Vatican Council and differs from previous ones. It explains why readings are chosen and combined and the various implications of those choices. It especially highlights how, in harmony with the liturgical year, the Lectionary presents Bible selections that unfold Christ's Paschal Mystery. The book also discusses the ecumenical impact of the Catholic Lectionary. Finally, it explains the physical aspects of the Lectionary's layout and gives a tour of the four volumes. Designed to be friendly and accessible, the book includes quotes from Church documents, charts, glossary, and suggestions for further reading. This book will enrich liturgical ministers and anyone interested in the role of the Bible in Catholic life.
