Say it like you mean it
When a lector shares the Word of God passionately, even if not perfectly, it can inspire Catholics in the pews to explore scripture as well.
My introduction to being a lector came through the invitation of another parish minister—not the pastor or another lector but the choir director. She encouraged me to minister at the lectern rather than in the choir loft. People familiar with my singing suggested that her discernment spared the whole parish.
