    I look forward to episodes dropping every Monday, especially when I am preparing a homily for the upcoming Sunday. The guests provide a wide range of views on how to prepare to preach. Ricardo conducts wonderful interviews. You can tell how passionate he is about helping priests and deacons prepare to give outstanding homilies. I wish I could give this podcast 10 stars! May the work of this podcast help to bring Christ and the Good News throughout the world.

  • Engaging Podcast

    Truly appreciate the wisdom and the takes each preacher has on the readings for each week. Of great interest is the post-homily discussion. This podcast appeals to the mind, the heart and the soul. Would love to see it expand from Sunday homilies to preparing to preach for retreats, Reconciliation Services, Wedding and Funeral Services. Keep up the great work.
