For a few brief moments, the lector has an opportunity to become a storyteller, bringing to the assembly the songs of a poet, the visions of a prophet, or the emotions of an apostle. Lectors usually obtain the reading for the Mass ahead of time in order to properly prepare for this important ministry.
Lectors, those who proclaim the Scriptures, and commentators, those who welcome the assembly and read the prayers of the faithful, typically minister at one Mass every three to four weeks. Each member is both a lector and commentator, and serves in each capacity on an alternating basis. Mass time assignments are also rotated.
