Up Close and Personal
Our skills may reach our listeners' minds, but it takes our 
closeness, warmth and unpretentiousness to reach their hearts. 
Here's what our beloved Pope Francis has to say about these
important qualities... Read More

Good Enough is Not Enough
Besides the privilege we're given to proclaim God's word on Sunday, we are also called beyond the ambo to cultivate The New Evangelization initiated by the Synod of Bishops in 2012. Like all our fellow parishioners, we are called to bring the love of Jesus to others in the walkways after Mass, at our church functions, at home, at work and out in the marketplace... Read More

Strong Words from a Loving Pope
In his engaging book, The Joy of the Gospel, Pope Francis puts great importance on diligent preparation of homilies, much of which also applies to the preparation of the readings. "A preacher who does not prepare is not spiritual," notes the Pope. "He is dishonest and irresponsible with the gifts he has received." Read More

In his best seller, How to Argue and Win Every Time, 
trial lawyer Gerry Spence, known for never losing a 
criminal case, called preparation "wading into life, 
languishing in it, rolling in it, embracing it, smearing

The Need for Attentive Listening
If you asked several people after Mass what the morning's readings were about, how many could give you a good answer? Attentive listening at Mass isn't easy. To switch channels and tune out all the outside noise we bring to Mass and tune into the word of God takes effort. So how do you begin this "retuning" with Catholics who've never learned the wonderful benefits of listening to the readings more attentively? Read More

Pope Benedict XVI... a Lectors' Ally
Beneath all the media blasts on child sex abuse scandals 
that overshadowed much of Pope Benedict's papacy, he had 
a mark of greatness that garnered little media coverage. 
It was his passion for the Holy Scriptures and his efforts to 
convey the importance of listening intently and prayerfully to 
the readings and Gospels at Sunday Mass. Read More
