This is collection of homilies provides a concise commentary on the Liturgy of the Word according to the three years cycle (ABC) of the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church. The aim is to open up the heart of the Scriptural teaching in the context of reflection or worship, to draw out the ideas implicit in the readings chosen for the Missal – a breaking open and sharing of the Word of God.
The format follows each liturgical year according to the Sundays of its seasons (Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, Ordinary Time), with the special solemnities and unchanging major feasts of the year added to the first (A) section. These homilies seek to address many needs, always trying to convey the hope of salvation in Jesus Christ – the Way he provides, the Path he illumines, and the life-affirming liberty and truth he brings to all men and women.
