No. Laity have
traditionally been forbidden to preach in church. As stated in the 1917 Code of
"Can. 1342 § 2
All laity are forbidden to preach in churches, even religious."
Also note that Holy
Scripture forbids women from even speaking in church...
"As in all the
churches of the holy ones, women should keep silent in the churches, for they
are not allowed to speak, but should be subordinate, as even the law says. But
if they want to learn anything, they should ask their husbands at home. For it
is improper for a woman to speak in the church. ... [W]hat I am writing to you is a
commandment of the Lord." (St. Paul under the inspiration of the Holy
Spirit in 1 Cor. 14:33-35, 37)
Note: In the
Vatican II, the unfortunate novelty of lay persons preaching in church may
be allowed "in certain circumstances." Tradition-minded Catholics, however,
continue to reject this unsuitable practice.
