” 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?November 1, 2006 at 2:27 am #7285
[color=green:qqr9deko]What’s your question exactly :” title=”Question” />[/color:qqr9deko]November 1, 2006 at 2:52 am #7286
Is not a priest the only one that is surpose to read the gospel at mass?not a lay person or deacon.November 1, 2006 at 8:15 am #7288
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.November 1, 2006 at 5:35 pm #7289
[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]November 1, 2006 at 6:32 pm #7291

Vic,what do you mean about above statement,do you mean only a priest can give out the Eucharist? What is the GIRM? never mine I found what is means,people still use the missal’s? I have one from the 50’sNovember 2, 2006 at 8:34 am #7294
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.November 2, 2006 at 5:57 pm #7295
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.November 2, 2006 at 8:06 pm #7296
In many churches they have missalettes, not the full blown missal.
