NO TO WOMEN PREACHING THE HOMILY AT MASS!
“L'Osservatore Romano” is calling for this in its women’s supplement. But Francis would have to contradict himself, in addition to the age-old tradition of the Church. Because he as well, two years ago, prohibited women from preaching during the Mass
Few know, however, that even Pope Francis has intervened to reiterate the ban, in line of principle...
Paragraphs 4 and 5 of the “Homiletic Directory” promulgated in 2014 in the form of a decree by the congregation for divine worship, with the approval of the pope, in fact state:
“Given its liturgical nature, the homily also possesses a sacramental significance: Christ is present in the assembly gathered to listen to his word and in the preaching of his minister, through whom the same Lord who spoke long ago in the synagogue at Nazareth now instructs his people. […] It is because the homily is an integral part of the Church’s worship that it is to be delivered only by bishops, priests, or deacons, […] or, in any case, always by one ordained to preside or assist at the altar.”
