Preaching for Discipleship- by Michael E. Connors, csc

The homily is a primary way that pastors and deacons can communicate how the whole parish community forms the catechumens. Many parishioners are not aware of their role in the Christian initiation process. In Preaching Discipleship: Preparing Homilies for Christian Initiation, Michael E. Connors, CSC, provides homilists and catechists with the tools to evangelize not only the catechumens present, but also to capture the imagination of the parish community so that they too realize their own role in the Christian Initiation process. This resource will:
Help the homilist build a homily; foster a deeper appreciation of the call to discipleship on the part of the assembly
Help the homilist instruct the assembly on their role in the Rite of Christian Initiation “so that right from the outset the catechumens may feel that they belong to the people of God”
Help the homilist bring the baptized and catechumens into a deeper personal relationship with the Lord
Provide specific insights during the period of Mystagogy
