Kerygma Homily Outlines
Archbishop Sample has asked all the priests of the Archdiocese to use the four weeks of Advent to preach a common theme of the kerygma. Kerygma is a term that is largely unfamiliar to most Catholics. Kerygma (from the Greek keryssein, to proclaim, and keryx, herald) refers to the initial and essential proclamation of the gospel message. The word appears nine times in the New Testament. To put it simply, the kerygma is the very heart of the gospel, the core message of the Christian faith that all believers are call to proclaim. I will using the weeks of Advent to preach on the Kerygma. If you would like more information I recommend the YouTube video of Fr. John Riccardo (Acts XXIX) on the kerygma.
