Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

These two volumes will be an asset in the library of anyone who is charged with the task of preparing a short and meaningful reflection on the daily Lectionary cycle. Talafous offers consistently good daily reflections and realistic suggestions and is sensitive to the social justice dimension of the Scriptures.
Pastoral Music

This book, for weekdays, is doubly useful because daily commentaries are less numerous than ones for Sundays and feast-days. It is the second volume, Fr. Don Talafous, O.S.B., having already published a well-received first volume. As an alumni chaplain for Saint John’s University, he understands the need for it, and how much his hearers will appreciate the short, pithy homily that is called for at a weekday service, where normally three minutes is ideal.
The Downside Review

. . . spiritual insights are matched with real-life experience which provides a refreshingly contemporary encounter with God’s word. The text is appropriate for personal reflection or as an aid to those preaching on a daily basis.
Catholic Library World

Ten of my 45 years of preaching at daily Mass have been supported by the homily suggestions of Father Don Talafous, O.S.B. His short messages of faith, hope and love have nourished my parishioners and me personally. After having collected his homilies which first appeared in the Loose Leaf Lectionary, and used Homilies for Weekdays Vol. I, I am delighted to have Volume II. It is Father Talafous at his best; simple expressions of great spiritual truths in a way we can all relate to. This is the best weekday homily help on the market for Year I.
Rev. Richard L. Foley, O.S.A. Parochial Vicar

The homilies are short and to the point without being overly simple, and are wonderful ways to jog your own ideas loose for homilies. But it's not just for homilies: those who are trying to get closer to the Word each day will find these reflections useful and interesting. RCIA groups or Bible study programs could also prosper under the guidance of these words, especially as a way to better understand God in our daily lives.
Crux of the News

. . . a treasure of short messages of hope in simple language that moves the heart. For those who homilize regularly, it is an insightful primer. For those who pray daily, it offers illuminating reflectings. Both will be inspired by keeping it close by. This is Father Talafous at his very best.
Wayne Hergott, Edina, Minnesota
