This podcast speaks about two very useful, but often forgotten about tools of rhetoric. The first is anaphora and the second is antithesis.
Rhetoric is the art of discourse, an art that aims to improve the facility of speakers or writers who attempt to inform, persuade, or motivate particular audiences in specific situations. Homilies are rhetoric that breaks open the word of God.
I give these examples and use them in this weeks homily in the hopes that we might all become better at crafting a good homily - giving God's people the best we have.
