When the Scriptures are read in the Church, God himself is speaking to his people through the Lector. The readings of God's word make up a principal element of the liturgy. Scripture is to be delivered in a loud and clear voice, the tone of voice should correspond to the genre of the text, that is, accordingly as it is a reading, a prayer, an instruction, an acclamation, or a liturgical song; the tone should also be suited to the form of celebration and to the solemnity of the gathering.
