II. DIFFERENT ELEMENTS OF THE MASS

 

READING AND EXPLAINING THE WORD OF GOD

9. When the Scriptures are read in the Church, God himself is speaking to his people, and Christ, present in his own word, is proclaiming the Gospel.

The readings must therefore be listened to by all with reverence; they make up a principal element of the liturgy. In the biblical readings God's word addresses all people of every era and is understandable to them, but a living commentary on the word, that is, the homily, as an integral part of the liturgy, increases the word's effectiveness.18

 




18. See SC art. 7, 33, 52.
