Looking at the Sanctuary from the centre aisle the Lectern is immediately to the left of the Altar. Apart from the Altar it is the most outstanding feature in the Sanctuary. Its purpose is immediately obvious; it is the place from which the Word ofGod is read and proclaimed. In its place of prominence next to the Altar the Lectern is very clearly linked with what goes on at the Altar. The Liturgy of the Word - the Readings, Responsorial Psalm and the Homily - prepare those taking part in the Eucharist to participate with more faith. The simplicity ofthe Lectern, with its clean lines and simple cross motif, is a visible expression of the simplicity of God’s Word.
