Workbook Canada provides the ongoing instruction and advice that readers need. Not only does it assist them in preparing their assigned reading on a specific occasion, but when readers use this resource every week to reflect on and learn about the Scriptures, it strengthens their proclamation skills and deepens their spiritual lives so that they can touch the hearts of the assembly with their reading.
The Canadian edition of Workbook contains the readings from the Canadian Lectionary in large print for practice, with words in bold indicating suggestions for emphasis, commentaries that give background and explain the meaning of the reading, margin notes with pronunciation guides and tips for proclamation, and the Responsorial Psalm for meditation and context. Workbook's introduction offers an orientation to this ministry of the Word and an overview of proclamation skills. For those parishes that want to adopt the practice on special occasions, links are provided to audio files demonstrating chanted introductions and closings for the readings.
