So, for example, a reading should not be divided up between lectors, one starting, one reading the middle, one reading the end of any given reading. The noted exception noted being the Passion.

We have maybe too much Anglo-Saxon "put on a stiff upper lip" ...http://thematadorword.blogspot.com/2016/10/october-30-homily-prep.html

October 24 - Weekday in Ordinary Time FATHER BILL DINGA'S BLOG - October 24, 2016 + These readings today are enormous in the simplicity of their universal scope. Whatever is menial, puny, insignificant – this can expect to eventuate into the Kingdom of God. Why? Because it permits the greatness of God to make something out of littleness.

This is called the ...http://fatherbill1975.blogspot.com/2016/10/october-24-weekday-in-ordinary-time.html
