A Short History of a Homily
I was away for a few days for a wedding out of town. On my first day away (Thursday) I wrote my homily for this Sunday. I looked at it again after the wedding rehearsal on Friday night and wasn't sure that it communicated well the message I wanted to preach. Driving back from the wedding on Saturday night I rethought the homily and once home I did a major rewrite of it. I printed it out this morning before going to church and still wasn't sure of it. One of my deacons preached at the 8:00 Mass and he used one word that turned on a light bulb in my homiletic mind. Before the 10:30 Mass I scrapped my text and wrote a few notes from which to preach the latest redaction the homily that began on Thursday afternoon. Not sure I'm satisfied with it yet, but here's what I preached this morning.
Working from notes only, I have no text to post, just the audio - and now I've discovered there's a problem with the volume on the audio -- my apology! If you experience the audio problem, too, try using earphones.
