Sunday Homilies - Cycle C - AL05971-C
In this volume, Father Smith rounds out his three-year cycle of practical, pertinent and popular reflections on the Word of God proclaimed from the pulpit each Sunday. Following his own advice he has kept his homilies short and to-the-point with brief, illustrated and often humorous stories which emphasize the main theme of the liturgical readings of the day. “Preaching,” he tells us, “must be the fruit of the preacher’s own prayed experience…[and] a good homily always serves up something to think about, something to emote over, something to aspire to, something to smile at, and something to believe. Most of all, it provides a truth of faith to live by”. These Sunday homilies succeed remarkably well in doing all these things.
