Homilies

Preaching is not something an ordained minister does for fifteen minutes on Sundays, but what the whole congregation does all week long; it is a way of approaching the world, and of gleaning God’s presence there - Barbara Brown Taylor


In the homily following the proclamation of the biblical readings on Sundays the preacher (usually, but not always, a priest) offers a brief spiritual commentary on the readings themselves. Here you can find some of the texts that the Rev. Dr. Gianluigi Gugliermetto, priest-in-charge of Christ Church at the present time, has prepared for delivery in the last few weeks. These homilies should be enjoyed after a careful reading of the corresponding biblical texts that are noted at the beginning of the homily and, in most cases, can be found here.
