    <img src=” title=”Confused” /> I was lead to believe that only the priest can read the gospel,but at are Church lots of time the Deacon reads it with the priest present. Am I wrong?

    Deacons are permitted to do the Gospel reading. In fact, if a deacon is assisting the priest at mass, it is the deacon’s place to perform the Gospel reading.

    This[/url:2kzf5mux] is straight from the GIRM. Check out “Liturgy of the Word”, 5th bullet point (counting the extra bullet at the top).

    [color=darkred:7e5kn9qj]What Benedict said has been my understanding as well.

    But the same can’t be said of the Eucharist. You need a priest for that.[/color:7e5kn9qj]

    They have missals in every church I have ever been.

    Only a priest can perform mass and offer the sacrifice of the Eucharist. A deacon will hand out the Precious Body and Blood but he cannot consecrate the gifts.

    Got it right now.About the missal’s I’m talking about the Saint Joseph “Continuous” Sunday Missal which I have in front of me right now,you said every church has missal’s maybe they do but I never seen them in my Church.Years ago almost everyone took there missal to church and followed along during Mass.

    In many churches they have missalettes, not the full blown missal.
