Of course, the indexes at the end of the book will be of great practical help to the everyday preacher / teacher / speaker to locate the topic / theme needed.

Daily Reflections for Lent
DateDecember 9, 2020 CategoryHomiletics
Daily Reflections for Lent "Baptism per se initiated us into a life of sanctity. Each year Lent provides us with forty days to dust off our baptismal promises and to polish our efforts at living up to the significance of this Sacrament. Seen in this light, the season of Lent is called many things: a journey, a challenge, a penance, an opportunity, the focus of all of which is supposed to move us from desert to city, from solitude to community, from temptation to dedication, and from personal accomplishment to radical trust in what only God can do. Thus Lent comes through as a totally immersive environment which we enter body and soul, and each year find this space of forty days a different experience. This book is a timely guide to showing us how this can be.
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
