Father Philip offers interesting advice on how to say focused while listening to a homily, or as we call them, sermons. One thing I sadly noted, and have continued to note, is that in many cases preaching in the Roman Catholic Church is … how to say this politely… ah…. lacking? Less than good? Not exactly consistently good? Well, they know it too. The Dominicans here in the USA continue to work hard to improve RC preaching. Fr. Philip is a young Dominican priest and theologian and I thought his comments on how to listen to a homily were interesting. How do you listen to a sermon?
