A CTS Publication (Publisher to the Holy See) Pope Francis wrote extensively on the homily as a constant source of renewal and growth in his Apostolic exhortation "Evangelii Gaudium". His own daily homilies have become a regular and thought-provoking appointment for Christians all over the world.

This Directory from the Congregation for Divine Worship answers the questions that were born from the Synod on the Word of God about the place of the homily in liturgy and as a means of bringing the people of God closer to scripture and the teaching of the Church.
