For this reason, "it is desirable that cathedrals and at least the larger, more populous parishes and the churches with a larger attendance possess a beautifully designed Book of the Gospels, separate from any other. The reverent act of processing The Book of the Gospels from gathering to altar and from altar to ambo is an important part of the liturgical celebration. As the most visible book to the assembly, The Book of the Gospels is meant to convey the power of the word of God to our communities.5/5(3).
