The document is an admonishment of poor preaching, saying the bishops are “aware that in survey after survey over the past years, the People of God have called for more powerful and inspiring preaching. A steady diet of tepid or poorly prepared homilies is often cited as a cause for discouragement on the part of laity and even leading some to turn away from the Church.”
Well, they themselves should stop using “people of God” every time they turn around. It’s like “American people” on the lips of a U.S. politician. Loses its lustre after a time, does it not?
And while we’re at it, “admonishment”? Really? From WashPost at that? Clumsy, clumsy.
