By Matthew Janeczko, OFM Cap.

Preaching, therefore, is a duty that is apostolic, angelic,  Christian, divine.  The word of God is replete with manifold blessings, since it is, so to speak, a treasure of all goods.  It is the source of faith, hope, charity, all virtues, all gifts of the Holy Spirit, all the beatitudes of the Gospel, all good works, all rewards of life, all the glory of paradise: Welcome the word that has taken root in you, with its power to save you.

Lawrence of Brindisi, Sermo Quadragesimalis 2
