A homily as part of the liturgy is a Holy act like the whole liturgy. The Good News should be its essence. The Good News, Jesus Christ - the Crucified, the Risen, the Giver of the Holy Spirit. He makes himself present in the liturgy, in a real word. He comes to a sinful man to save him. Therefore homily is the meeting of God and man. It's God's Word made present in the word of a human preacher. Appropriate knowledge of the Holy Bible and human matters as well as the inclusion of the issues of Christian faith presented in thematic homilies certainly improve their quality.
