Reading Gospel and Lesson


Dear Community,

in the ecclesial right it´s the regulation, that the Priest reads aloud the Gospel and a Lector reads the or the both Lessons. Why is this stipulated? And do it ´ve other Regulations about Who is reading? I ´m pleased about all answers.


At my parish the deacon reads the gospel.
