Preaching the Mystery of Faith: : The Sunday Homily (Bishops Statement)
Preaching is evangelizing, making the Word come alive for the People of God. This task is central to the New Evangelization and the Church's renewal.
The bishops' statement Preaching the Mystery of Faith: The Sunday Homily, is directed toward priests, deacons, and seminary educators who prepare them to preach the Sunday homily in these times of confusion and relativism. The statement gives special attention to the biblical and theological foundations for effective liturgical preaching and considers the proper connection between the Sunday homily and the Church's liturgy and catechesis. Preaching the Mystery of Faith emphasizes the particular pastoral needs of our time that have prompted the call for a renewed evangelization.
The Word of God is "a wellspring of constant renewal" in the Church and a power that "will be ever more fully at the heart of every ecclesial activity." (Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation Verbum Domini, No. 7-136; Spanish No. 7-826)
