This document has been produced as a result of the request made by participants in the Synod of Bishops held in 2008 on the Word of God. In response to this request, Pope Benedict XVI directed the competent authorities to prepare a Directory on the homily. In the first part, entitled The homily and its liturgical setting: the nature, function, and specific context of the homily are described. In the second part, Ars praedicandi, essential questions of method and content that the homilist must know and take into account in the preparation and delivery of the homily are illustrated.
