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 sitll 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 principaly the responsibiblity of the priest or deacon who presides at the liturgy. He will need all the help he can get. This third volume in a series of Meditations/Homiles for the Weekdays of the Year covers weeks twenty-two through thirty-four and focuses mainly on the gospel of St. Luke, the most joyful of all the gospels. Hence the title Rejoicing In Hope.
