Sunday Homily Helps blends contemporary scholarship with pastoral needs, placing the Sunday Scripture readings in their historical and cultural context and highlighting their theological and spiritual themes. Along with exegesis of the readings and Gospel, Sunday Homily Helps provides a detailed outline and story to coordinate your homily, offering the freedom and flexibility to make the sermon your own.
In Each Issue
Brief and to-the-point, the 250-word exegesis of the readings and Gospel breaks open the Word of God for the Sunday liturgy. The detailed homily outline offers a story to coordinate with your homily and concludes with a transition to the Liturgy of the Eucharist, providing the flexibility and freedom to address the heart of the message in your own personal style. The included lectern guide provides an introduction to the Penitential Rite, introductions to all three readings and sample General Intercessions for every Sunday and Holy Day.
How to Use It
Review the explanation of each Sunday reading. Use the detailed homily outline to create your own sermon, adding examples and personal insights as you choose. Provide the lectern guide to lectors and parish liturgy committees to promote greater understanding of the Sunday liturgy.
