His Word is Life (Seasons and Feasts)
This book contains brief homilies for daily liturgical celebrations during the special seasons of Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter. It also includes homilies for days of Solemnities, Feasts and Obligatory Memorials. Written in simple and direct style by an experienced homilist, it is not meant to be a scholarly study of exegesis but a pastoral and devotional application of God’s Word to daily life in tune with the rhythms of the liturgical year. These inspiring homilies are meant for: - Those Who attend Weekday Masses and who are looking for simple and practical applications of the liturgical readings to their lives. - Those who cannot attend Weekday Masses, but who will like to spend time reﬂecting on the liturgical readings of the day at home. - Busy priests who have the demanding task of saying something relevant, simple and uplifting, based on the readings of the day, to the congregation.
From the Upper Room to the Altar of the World
From the Upper Room to the Altar of the World is a collection of reﬂections on the Word of God. These reﬂections focus on the Eucharist and suggest that the Eucharist has to ﬂow from the Upper Room to the Altar of the World and thus it connects the Eucharist with the vicissitudes of life in the World. Though the reﬂections are not arranged according to the liturgical cycle of the year, most of the topics cover the Sundays of the liturgical Year. It is very useful for preachers, teachers, catechists, religious and seminarians.
Feast Day Homilies
Here is a real blessing for preachers. It gives, besides Scripture reﬂections and meditations for the feasts of the Lord and for other feasts, also brief lives of the saints with reﬂections and practical applications. All of these make the book a thing of beauty and an incomparable asset. It should accompany the Bible and the Breviary of every priest; he Will ﬁnd it very helpful to himself and to his ﬂock. It offers excellent material for animation of any religious or parish community. The example of the saints will edify the priest and the faithful alike, and invite them to move closer to God and to be focussed on the essential goal of life: to be happy with Him for ever. Though homily books abound, this is a rare one that offers good interior nourishment on the feasts of the Lord and of saints. (From the Foreword by Telesphore
