Father Joseph Byron and Dialogue Homilies

Father Joseph Byron came to my attention because of his connection to a minor innovation, “dialogue homilies.” It is difficult to say with certainty what they were, but judging by results in the Catholic News Archive, they were an experimental feature of some liturgies practiced in 1966-1972. There is an oblique description of dialogue homilies in 1968: Nor have the dialogue homilies been the sort Msgr. Oesterreicher mentions with disdain.
