A young fan named Liam asks, "Why does the priest bless the deacon before reading the Gospel?" Liam shares that he is an altar server and has noticed this while serving. Father Dave explains that the instructions state that the deacon should ask for the priest's blessing. So, the priest is delegating the deacon to proclaim the Gospel. Father Dave also points out that the prayer prayed over the deacon is the same prayer that the priest would pray himself before reading the Gospel. Original Air 6-07-17
