Congregation of Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments
The Homiletic Directory from the Vatican's Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments will help deacons, priests, and bishops renew homiletic preaching. It answers the call from Pope Francis and Pope Benedict XVI to make preaching a priority for the Church. The Homiletic Directory will strengthen appreciation for the homily as a tool to preach the Catholic faith.
Take a look at how to prepare for a homily with the Word of God (Part I) and the art and method of preaching (Part II). Get ideas on how to root a homily in the unity of Scripture, the Tradition of the Church, and teachings that have been handed down. Find solid guidance for each Sunday and feast day of the liturgical year plus weekdays, weddings, and funerals. Use the appendices for further references from the Catechism of the Catholic Church and Magisterial teachings.
The Homiletic Directory is a powerful and necessary resource for deacons, priests, and bishops-both newly ordained and seasoned preachers!
