Once again, in this the third and final volume of his thoughtful reflections on the Sunday Gospels, Father Slattery shows how St., Luke-whose writings so dominate the readings for Cycle C-manifests the companion and love of Jesus for the poor, the downtrodden and the outcasts of this world. As in his other two volumes, Fr. Slattery challenges us to deny ourselves, take up our cross each day and to follow in the footsteps of Jesus. By pointing out the ways in which the Gospel message can and must be lived if it is to bear fruit in our lives and in the world in which we live, he once again afflicts the comfortable and comforts the afflicted in challenging us to take that message to heart and to put it into practice every day. All who consult this volume will find their lives and liturgical worship meaningfully enhanced by a careful consideration and application of the thoughts and sentiments expressed herein. Priests and deacons will likewise find much that will be helpful in their homily preparation.
