Archbishop Naumann is interviewed by Deacon Bill Scholl about the Kerygma and an initiative in the Archdiocese for all the priests and deacons to preach the Kerygma during advent.
They base their discussion on Fr. John Riccardo's book
Fr. Riccardo teaches that, "Kerygma is the Greek word for “proclamation.” It refers to the basic message of the gospel. But “basic” doesn’t mean “ordinary.” When St. Paul says that the gospel is “the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes” (Romans 1:16), he doesn’t mean Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. He means the proclamation of all that God has done for us in his Son, Jesus. He means the kerygma.
