Liturgical Reflection

April 29, 2015



The Homily is a central part of Mass. It is necessary for the nurturing of the Christian life. It should be an explanation of some aspect of the readings from Sacred Scripture or of another text from the Roman Missal. The Homily should take into account both the mystery being celebrated and the particular needs of the listeners. The Homily is ordinarily given by the Priest Celebrant or can be entrusted to a concelebrating Priest or to the Deacon, but never to a lay person. It is especially recommended to have a Homily on the weekdays of Easter Time. The General Instruction of the Roman Missal, Numbers 65 and 66.
