The Sermon Versus the Homily

Did you know there was a difference?

Well, read and learn.

The homily is a talk relating to the readings at Mass.

A sermon is on a defined topic.

For example, if the priest talks about needing money, that's a sermon.  If he talks about the connection between the two readings and the gospel, and how they relate to people's lives, that's a homily.
