The son of a deacon, on preaching

And he happens to be a priest, Fr. Mark Knestout, of the Archdiocese of Washington.

Actually, he’s part of a family that holds a unique place in American church history: the only family (so far as anyone knows) that has produced men in all three levels of Holy Orders.  His father, Thomas Knestout, was a deacon and former head of the diaconate office in Washington; his brother Barry is an auxiliary bishop for the Archdiocese of Washington.    (You can read more about the Knestouts here.)   

Below, CNS features Fr. Mark and some of his parishioners discussing the art of effective preaching.
