Overview

The ideal liturgical homily is described in Luke 4:16-30: "Jesus read the SCRIPTURES; he proclaimed, "TODAY THIS TEXT IS BEING FULFILLED, even as you listen.'" He won the approval of all; others rejected him. This form of preaching has been continued throughout the history of the Church. In addition to the language of the scriptures, in the course of the centuries A CHRISTIAN IDIOM AND GRAMMAR has developed - a special heritage of the Catholic Church. Unfortunately, in our day, this idiom and grammar seem to be in the danger of being ignored. And hence, the present proposal-a three-year cycle of homilies that combines the scriptures and Catechesis (our Catholic idiom) with the "today" of Christ's presence celebrated in the liturgy. We hope this book will lead to a re-catechized and re-evangelized Catholicism in our day.

Meet the Author

The author, Nihal Abeyasingha, is a Catholic priest. He combines a knowledge of several disciplines-civil law, philosophy, theology, world religions, culture, and languages-with a couple of earned doctorates; extensive pastoral ministry in many settings and teaching in both seminaries and secular universities; several academic and popular publications; and dozens of homilies published in many countries. This book is offered as a contribution to the Church today, where a renewal of the language and idiom proper to the Catholic tradition seems to be in urgent need of renewal and restoration.

The content might be good but without an interactve table of contents it is tedious to find particular Sundays. I don't think the price of the book is worth the difficulty in navigating through it. The message might be good but the medium is lacking. Better formatting is needed.
