At 5.30 this morning the USCCB lectionary webpage indicated that today is the memorial of Mary Magdalene.
I prepared a homily on the proper readings for the memorial.
When I got to the Missal in church, I realized that the USCCB webpage was wrong. So, my homily was useless.
Tossing aside the text of the prepared homily, I solidered on with an improvised homily on what it means to say "Christ has fulfilled the words of the prophet."
After Mass, four different parishioners told me that it was my best homily ever. One, a literary sort like myself, very excitedly said, "Father, I'm praying that your printer breaks down, or you spill remoulade sauce on your keyboard!"
From all this, I take it that some would rather have an off-the-cuff homily than a prepared text.
So, there may be some experimentation in my homiletic future!___________________
