Communication is the process of communicating of individuals, groups and institutions. Preaching the word of God is a special form of communication through the message communicated which is the homily and through the liturgical-sacramental context of this action. The sender of the homiletic message is God who makes use of the person of the preacher; the recipients are the members of the liturgical assembly, while human speech is the channel of communication. The article is an attempt to analyze the perception of those listening to the Word of God in the St. Raphael Kalinowski Parish in Elblag. It focuses on modern preaching and how the return message plays an important role in the process of communication. The conclusions drawn are a material for further pastoral work.
