“How can they believe in him of whom they have not heard?”
–Romans 10: 14
There is probably no greater need within the Catholic community than to hear, understand, and appreciate the Scriptures. In this informational age of spoken and published words, however, there is probably no greater challenge than to proclaim the readings in an attractive and interesting way. Readers need to know they are neither taking the priest's place nor simply reading a required text. They are fulfilling a calling of proclaiming and bringing to life the story in which we find our identity as God's people.
