We Are Called

When we join in the Celebration of the Eucharist, we see many items and areas within the Church that are essential for this celebration.

Within the Church, a significant area is the sanctuary which is the front part of the Church. This area is sometimes elevated or sunken from where people sit in the Church to ensure that all can see and hear all aspects of the Mass. During the Mass the priest spends most of the time in the sanctuary area of the Church.

Within the Sanctuary area the lectern is placed. During the Mass, the Word of God is read from the lectern. This helps to remind us that what believers are hearing is important and worthy of paying special attention to. The lector is the person who reads the First and Second Readings during Mass. Then the Priest or a Deacon reads the Gospel.

Readers, or Proclaimers of the Word read at the lectern from the Lectionary which is a book containing a collection of scripture readings. The lectionary is kept in the Church as it is used daily.

This week at Mass the gospel, read by the priest, is very familiar as it is the story of Jesus feeding five hundred people by multiplying five loaves and two fish.

In this story a young boy offers the gifts that he has – the loaves and the fish for the good of all. Just as the young boy shared his gifts, we also recognise that we have all been given many gifts and are invited to use our gifts to share Jesus’ message and follow his example in our words and actions.

As we listen to the Gospel reading on Sunday consider how we use our gifts to share the Good News.
