I do prefer a homily, however short. However, many people who attend the 6:30a Mass at my parish leave as soon as the priest walks into the sacristy. I'm sure that many of them are **trying to fit daily Mass into their schedule **while still making it to work on time. To add another 5-10 minutes to Mass for a homily could make a difference between someone making it to work on time, or making it back from their lunch break for Noon Masses.
I'm just grateful for the opportunity to attend Daily Mass, and to have a priest who is willing to be there day after day at 6a (because he listens to confessions before Mass, too) so that I may spend time with my God before fulfilling the duties of my vocation.
This. The Church does not require a homily for daily Mass, so we can't require it either.
TrueLight, I think your Pentacostal roots are showing - to want to hear preaching and the Bible both! :D
