This is a strange question but here it goes…
Only deacons, priests and bishops can proclaim the gospel in a liturgical setting. That is clearly understood. But why can lay lectors read parts of in Acts and Revelation where Jesus speaks?
Similarly, it has always been understood that it is the Second Person of the Trinity who speaks the words of creation in Genesis (“Let there be…”).
Further, throughout the year, lay lectors read Old Testament readings where the Father speaks. Why is the laity allowed to read when the Father Speaks but not when the Son speaks?
Why the inconsistency? (If you ask me, only the ordained should read the spoken word of the Trinity).
