‘That You May Proclaim His Gospel Worthily and Well’: Exercising the Grace of Preaching

As an act of communication, preaching is not a simple sharing of information. It is a privileged witness to a person, the Risen Christ. To speak about the Lord — and to speak about him well, as the liturgy prays that we do — the preacher must in concrete ways be like the Lord. The preacher must not only know and love the Savior, he must also know what the Savior knows and love what the Savior loves. As the friend of the Bridegroom—who shares life with his friend and thus knows him well—the preacher constantly confirms for the Bride the truth and love of her Spouse.

With over 40 years of combined priestly ministry, Fr. Aquinas Guilbeau, OP, and Fr. Daniel Scheidt, will share the fruits of their study and practice of preaching, with the goal of reflecting on not only the craft of preaching but also the life of the preacher, specifically the kind of priestly life necessary to sustain decades of preaching well to the People of God.
