EWTN Catholic Q&A
Re: No Homily
Question from Deacon Gary on 09-07-2012:

Dr. Geraghty, I would like to correct the statement that a Homily is required at all Masses. That is incorrect, the GIRM (General Instruction Roman Missal states that a Homily is required on Sunday's and Holy Days of Obligation and "Recommended" all other days.

Yours in Christ, Deacon Gary

Thanks for your note. You may find the note above of J.C. Taylor interesting.
