The Great Problem for each one of us to solve is: How shall I travel along the journey of life that I may attain the happiness of Eternal Life? The solution of this problem is attempted in these short sermons. In a few words the solution is: Avoid evil and do good.
Although only the first sermon is on The Great Problem and most of the others on subjects suggested by the Gospels of the different Sundays, still all have the same end in view and the same central idea pervades the various sermons. Most of them are "Five-Minute Sermons" for early Masses; some, however, are longer and would consume fifteen minutes or more in their delivery.
If necessary, the short sermons could be developed into long ones, and most of the longer ones (e. g. by taking one point) could readily be shortened to "Five-Minute Sermons."
In these sermons, no attempt has been made to be eloquent. The aim of the author was to tell the truth clearly and clothe the important old subjects in plain language that would be easily understood.
It is hoped that they possess the essential qualities of brevity and clearness; that they are in perfect harmony with the teachings of the Catholic Church, and that they may aid many, who heard them or who read them, in solving The Great Problem.
