Homiletic Directory Sermon Program


The Second Part of the new Homiletic Directory on cathechetical preaching may be helpful as an attempt by the Church to address the present educational crisis in the Church and in the world. Below is the appendix with a schema for topics from the Catechism for every Sunday and major Feast of the year corresponding to the three year cycle of readings.


THE HOMILY AND THE CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
(APPENDIX I of the Homiletic Directory)

157. A concern that has been voiced often in the years since the Second Vatican Council, notably in Synods of Bishops, has been the need for more doctrine in preaching. The Catechism of the Catholic Church provides a truly useful resource for the homilist in this regard, but it is important that it be used in a way that is consonant with the purpose of the homily.

158. The Roman Catechism was published at the direction of the Fathers of the Council of Trent, and some editions included a Praxis Catechismi which divided the contents of the Roman Catechism according to the Gospels for the Sundays of the year. It is not surprising that, with the publication of a new catechism in the wake of the Second Vatican Council, the suggestion has been raised to do something similar with the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Such an initiative faces many practical obstacles, but more crucial is the fundamental objection that the Sunday liturgy is not an “occasion” on which to deliver a sermon, that would in its topic be contrary to the liturgical season and its themes. Even so, there may be specific pastoral reasons requiring the explanation of a particular aspect of doctrinal and moral teaching. Decisions of this sort require pastoral prudence...
