This classic four-volume set presents sermons by the great Church Fathers and Doctors of the Church for each Sunday and Feast Day. Editor and translator Father M.F. Toal brings together several sermons for every celebration from both early Eastern and Western Fathers of the church, including Ambrose, John Chrysostom, Cyril of Alexandria, Leo the Great, Ephraem, Augustine, and more. Each sermon is followed by a relevant passage of the Catena Aurea (Golden Chain) of St. Thomas Aquinas.
A superb series for preaching, spiritual reading, and meditation, Sunday Sermons of the Great Fathers also contains the Gospel reading for each Sunday and Feast Day (of the pre-Vatican II Calendar), and parallel Gospel texts. The four volumes correspond with the four liturgical divisions of the year. Each volume also includes a table of sermons that correspond with the Vatican II Lectionary. This series offers the ideal way to enter the mind of the early Church Fathers and the spirit of Sacred Scripture.
