The Word This Week

Catholic Preaching Resources

About Us


This website is managed by a Roman Catholic priest who volunteers his time and resources to curate hundreds of links and pieces of content from top-rated websites for priests, deacons, musicians, catechists, lectors, and anyone wishing to prepare for Sunday Mass. The website is a labor of love. It transcends language barriers and cultural divides.

The website is not affiliated with any diocese, parish, or organization. However, it regularly shares links that are useful for those who serve these entities. Whether you’re a priest looking to give poignant sermons or a catechist looking for ways to better teach each week, this site has something to offer everyone.

One thought on “About Us

  1. I just recently discovered your website, thanks to Deacon Greg Kandra’s Blog.
    It is an excellent resource for preaching and prayer. Thank you for doing this!

    I create a Sunday Graphic (containing a quote and an image of the Sunday Gospel) each week for my Blog, “RPH Quotations Blog” -
    If you think it could be used on your website, let me know and I would be happy to share the Sunday Graphic with you each week.

    Please continue to encourage us to joyfully and hopefully preach the Word of God!
