Homilies & Talks

DEACON CROSS SMALLEROnce  I was asked by a parishioner to provide the written text of one of my homilies.  I don’t know if they were interested in what I said or if they wanted to send it to my Archbishop.  I could not provide the text because I am not blessed (or cursed) with the “write it all out then read it gene”!  I do research, make a 4-5 bullet outline, rehearse several times and then preach.   The request made me think about recording some of my homilies and various talks and posting them online. I am trying to remember to do it!
