On women playing the role of lector

Women's likes to read
I kind of stood back for awhile on this issue because it seemed so obvious to me - the solution that is - that I figured someone would state the obvious.

Its not about whether having women fill the lector role at Mass is wrong (that seems plain). Nor is it about laymen in general.

Simply put, there is no reason why the priest cannot read all the propers and lectionary during mass.  It is not that hard to do so.  It is not necessary to clericalize laymen, but rather to teach them the dignity that their state affords them.

Stop the abuse of "active participation".
