Commentators, Function of at Mass

Question I would like an explanation of the role of the commentator and where that role is discussed in the laws of the Church.

Answer This minister provides explanations and commentaries with the purpose of introducing the faithful to the celebration and preparing them to understand it better. The commentator's remarks must be meticulously prepared and marked by a simple brevity.

In performing this function the commentator stands in a convenient place visible to the faithful, but it is preferred that this not be at the lectern where the Scriptures are read.

(GIRM Chapter III, Part III)
