Sixty-six seminarians of the Pontifical North American College were instituted to the Ministry of Lector during the Sunday celebration of the Eucharist on January 15, 2012.
The Most Rev. Timothy P. Broglio, Archbishop of the Military Services, USA, celebrated the Mass and instituted the new lectors. Handing the book of Sacred Scriptures to each seminarian, he said, “Take this book of holy Scripture and be faithful in handing on the Word of God, so that it may grow strong in the hearts of His People.”
Hearing the Gospel of John recount John the Baptist pointing to Jesus as the Lamb of God, Archbishop Broglio preached, “The Christian vocation is always one of pointing to the Word of God and guiding others to follow Him… It is an invitation to intimacy with the Lord.”
