The Deacon Preacher is the oldest and most respected free homiletics site designed by Deacons for Deacons.
“A church that doesn't provoke any crisis, a gospel that doesn't unsettle, a Word of God that doesn't get under anyone's skin, what kind of gospel is that? Preachers who avoid every thorny matter so as not to be harassed do not light up the world.” – Bl. Archbishop Oscar Romero
The Deacon who preaches brings a unique point of view to the pulpit. The challenge is to remain fresh and focused on God's Word as presented in the liturgical texts. The purpose of this site is to aid in the research, preparation and preaching of the homily.
Here you will
find articles and commentary on the art of preaching, the Lectionary texts and resources that are
free and can be downloaded. If you find this site useful, please let me know.
Homilies are always welcome from Deacons, Priests, Seminarians* and those in Diaconal Formation*, Roman Catholic, Orthodox or Anglican only please.
Please make your submission in either Word format, or preferably as a PDF.
If you would like for me to archive your homilies on your own page, please submit a photo and a short bio.
Submit a homily by email. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
*Those not yet ordained will be listed with an asterisk.
