Homily Writing Assignment Guidelines
Task: To write a homily based on a set of Bible readings.
- Read the assigned Bible readings either from your Bible or from an online version of the Bible.
- Write a one-page homily.
- Your homily may be typed or handwritten. If typed, 1.5 spacing and 12 pt font Arial or Times New Roman.
- It must include the citation of the readings at the top of the page along with a title.
Homily Writing Tips:
- Remember you are writing for the ‘ears’ not the ‘eyes.’ Your homily should sound interesting and be easy to follow for your audience.
- Use words and phrases from the text.
- Unpack key words and difficult words for your audience.
- Use present-tense, active voice in your homily.
- Use alliteration to give your homily rhythm.
- Use metaphors and similes to help explain concepts.
***Most of all, ILLUSTRATE, INSTRUCT, INVITE.
ILLUSTRATE- Explain the text in an interesting and clear manner.
INSTRUCT- Discuss the main idea or theme of the text. Make the message clear.
INVITE- Use the homily to bring your audience closer to God and the Bible. Clearly, invite them to read and see for themselves.
