  • Gospel Reading of the Day
    • The prayer leader should write the Gospel passage on the board before the prayer begins. The rest of the class should already look for the assigned Gospel passage.
    • The prayer leader should follow the proper way of reading the Gospels. The leader should begin with: “A Reading from the Gospel according to…” then everyone will say: “Glory to you, O Lord.” (Making the proper gesture) Then, at the end of the Gospel the leader will say: “The Gospel of the Lord.” Everyone will respond: “Praise to You, Lord Jesus Christ.”
