Liturgical Hints & Ideas

During Ordinary Time in Year B we will highlight passages from the new General Instruction on the Roman Missal (GIRM) that pertain to music during the liturgy. The GIRM contains rubrics and instructions (some of them new) for the celebration of the Mass. The first section below is a direct quote from the English translation of the document. The second section is a commentary on the passage.

The Functions of the Reader (GIRM #196) — Liturgy of the Word

The reader reads from the ambo the readings that precede the Gospel. In the absence of a psalmist, the reader may also proclaim the Responsorial Pslam after the First Reading.

Commentary: The Sunday readings (including the Responsorial Psalm) are very clearly defined in the Lectionary. Knowing that some congregations may wish to reinforce a psalm/refrain by sequential repetition, or that a parish may want to unify a season with a consistent psalm, the Church allows us to substitute for the specific Responsorial Psalm of the Sunday a Common Responsorial Psalm for the season (including Ordinary Time). This exception clearly does not extend to musical "paraphrases" of the psalms, be they metrical hymn versions or lyric creations of the contemporary singer/song-writers. The text must be the Church's as presented in the approved books. The musical choice (within good taste) is ours. If a good setting of the proper (or common) Responsorial Psalm cannot be found or learned, I think it better to recite a correct psalm (as indicated above in GIRM #196) than to sing some individual's "version" of sacred Scripture.

Note the use of the new term "reader" rather than "lector." This is perhaps to distinguish the lay minister in a parish situation from the Instituted Lector, an official designation [akin to the old minor orders] of a seminarian on his way to priesthood. Should an Instituted Lector be present in the parish (for example, a seminarian on Christmas break), he should be offered the role of reading at Mass — it is his official ministry, much like the Priest, Deacon and Instituted Acolyte have preference over the laity as ministers of Holy Communion.
