Homilists today face many challenges. Their congregations consist of old and young, rich and poor, educated and not so well educated. There are young college students who are tired of homilies that are too elementary and say nothing worthwhile to the problems that they face. There are others who feel that they are spiritually deprived by homilies that are too bland. And there are still others who are looking for some insights into the secular world in which they live and which has no time for church or the things of God. Preaching, of course, is everybody’s job but it is principally the responsibility of the priest or deacon who is presiding at the liturgy.


These three volumes of homilies for the weekdays of Ordinary Time are an invaluable resource for them. Thirst For Life Vol. 1 focuses on Mark, The New Out of the Old Vol. 2 on Matthew, and Rejoicing in HopeVol. 3 on Luke.
