Why is it that it seems common practice at daily Masses in the EF to not preach (and thus not repeat the readings in English)? Would it be illicit to do so? Might this be a case where mutual enrichment might manifest itself?
There is no obligation to preach at daily Masses. Can. 767 § 2 says that a homily (sermon) must be preached on Sundays and Holy Days of precept. It cannot be omitted except for a grave reason.
As a matter of fact, the fad of preaching at daily Masses is pretty new. In some cases, it might respond to a genuine desire of the faithful for instruction. In some cases, it might reflect the priest’s love of the sound of his own voice as he scatters his profundities. In other cases, Father might think that he has to preach. He doesn’t.
As for wanting to hear the readings in English, I might recommend getting a hand missal and/or taking a look at them before Mass begins.
A priest can preach at a daily TLM if it is opportune.
That’s the question. Is it opportune? Some preachers are better than others at the “fervorino”. Some people really need to get to work or get home to cook supper for their kids.
We might try a little poll.
