Father Dave Gives out Homily Advice

How does a priest prepare for a homily? Should it be written out word-for-word, improvised, or somewhere in between? Father Dave gives some counsel to a young priest, or as Father Dave calls him a “baby priest,” on the process of composing a homily and using feedback to help write future homilies. They discuss methods they’ve learned and seen and even relate the process of writing and memorizing to activities like stand-up comedy. (Original Air 09-13-16)
