Liturgical notes

The dignity of the word of God requires that the church have a place that is suitable for the
proclamation of the word and toward which the attention of the whole congregation of the faithful
naturally turns during the Liturgy of the Word. It is appropriate that this place be ordinarily a stationary ambo and not simply a movable lectern.

General Instruction of the Roman Missal, §309

Continuing the example of Ezra in our reading this Sunday, the Church has always reverenced the special place assigned to the proclamation of God’s Word. The beauty of the ambo invites both reverence for the Word proclaimed and faithful hearing by the assembly. The holy people of God are thus called to be both hearers of the Word and doers of that Word in their daily life.

‘I am the light of the world, says the Lord; whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’

—communion antiphon
