About the Conference:

This conference will offer some theological and practical approaches to the art of preaching. Fr. Cardó will begin with a reflection on the centrality of preaching in the context of the situation of the Church and the world and then lay the foundations of the theological understanding of preaching, following recent teachings from the Magisterium and the insights of classic authors on the topic. This will lead to a reflection on the incarnation as a key for effective preaching, which will be the foundation for the final topics, of a more practical nature: the preparation and delivery of the liturgical homily.
