This highly-acclaimed series of homily reflections offers inspiration for the many situations where homilists are called to speak. Popular homilist Father Harold A. Buetow coordinates his reflections with the Mass readings for Liturgical Years I and II; Cycle Years A, B, and C; and special occasions such as sacramental rites, holidays, feast days, ecumenical gatherings, healing services, and more. Father Buetow’s characteristic blend of humor and reverence applies scriptural wisdom to real-life situations, resulting in engaging sermons. An excellent resource both for those crafting homilies—such as priests, deacons, and lay-ministers—and for personal spiritual reading throughout the liturgical year.
