O’Malley’s preaching

O’Malley’s preaching

The Boston Globe had nothing to say about the Proud2BCatholic concert over the weekend, but it did find space to analyze Archbishop O’Malley’s preaching ability.

They do get one thing right. He is a very good preacher, as I noted in my post below about his homily at the Mass at the concert. He avoids most of the pitfalls of many bishops, by spending more time pandering to the crowd than preaching the Gospel. He apparently writes his own homilies, in contrast to some bishops who farm out that task to aides. He has a charismatic style that avoids the monotone, but exudes passion and interest.
