Fulfilled in Your Hearing
In 1982 , the bishops of the United States published a document called Fulfilled in Your Hearing , a reflection on the meaning of the homily in the Sunday Mass. The document has become a significant tool in the development of Catholic homiletics. The document, which is nearly 30 years old now, is now posted on the USCCB website. It is a useful point of departure in deepening understanding of the importance of preaching in the Liturgy. As with all liturgical matters, the homily must be treated with utmost respect and care.
