"Someone asked why the Sunday readings are not in the Breaking Bread book. Readings are to be proclaimed and listened to. We are blessed to have excellent readers who actually rehearse the readings. When we go to a play or movie, we usually do not take the 'script' with us and 'follow along.' So, too, at Mass we need to listen attentively. If there is a hearing problem, we do have assistive devices available in the sacristy. For those who would like to read the readings in advance, they are available online. I hope this is helpful in understanding our custom."For reference, here's the Breaking Bread Annual Subscription edition at Oregon Catholic Press, "Also available with full Lectionary readings...".
Our pastor is in that long period between announcing he will be retiring and the end of his term. Over on the secular side we referred to this period as "dead man walking". It's a time for, among other things, making lists of changes to pitch to the next person in charge.
By list might include suggesting to the next pastor that the anathema be lifted against those who genuflect when receiving Communion (See my earlier post Sailing the Pharisees.) Or at least that various references to being a "welcoming" parish should footnote this example, just so people know what they're getting into.
