Does preaching matter?

“GooglingGod” blog pointed us to the “PrayTell Blog” that mentions that the importance of preaching is a debatable question. What about you?

Preaching… not important?

Does preaching matter at mass? Sigh, some morons say no.

I recently came across an op-ed in a Catholic publication that just brushed the edge of this argument. The quality of a Mass doesn’t depend on the homily, the writer suggested, nor should we should expect it to. To yearn for good preaching, to seek it out, undervalues the true point of the Mass, the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. I was left with the vague sense that my desire to have an effective “living commentary” [GIRM 29] on the Scriptures was at best something of an imposition on busy priests, and at worst, a sign of failing faith in the Eucharist. It is sufficient that there is a homily.

I don’t buy it.
