Are you starving for inspiring homilies? Did you know that poor preaching is one of the top three excuses why people leave the Church? And that it’s the reason many Catholics don’t come to Holy Mass? There is a preaching problem in the Catholic Church—a major problem. Parishioners know it, priests know it, and bishops know it. It’s an old story that just doesn't seem to change…until now! The Sacred Conversation efficiently answers the question on many catholic minds: Why can’t priests preach? Father Joseph Mele gives a first-rate analysis of and a resolution to what it will take to form priests who can preach effectively to the Church today. Catholic homilies are not Protestant sermons. Learn the difference and become a fruitful homilist! Includes a Foreword by Cardinal Donald Wuerl.
