These twenty brief homilies in both English and Spanish were prepared to assist those who may be fluent in one but not the other language to preach at Masses and other events without struggling to find the proper word or tense to express a thought worthy of the occasion. Sermons for Holy Days of Obligation, major feasts of Mary, Baptisms, Penance Services, First Communions, Anointing of the Sick, Funerals, Weddings and Graduations as well as for Good Friday, All Souls Day, and the Feasts of St. John the Baptist and the Epiphany are among those included here. An invaluable aid to those called upon to minister in Spanish-English bilingual parishes.

 

About the Author: Father Frederick J. Murphy, Rector of Holy Cross Cathedral in Boston and former Dean of the archdiocesan seminary at Brighton, Massachusetts, and professor of Classical Languages and the History of Religions, conceived this project drawing upon his years of preaching weekends to a suburban congregation outside of Boston. He has also regularly celebrated the Eucharist for an inner-city Spanish speaking congregation. In this work he welcomes the expertise of a faculty colleague, Sister Margaret Pauline Young, a Sister of Notre Dame de Namur, former Chair of Romance Languages at Emmanuel College in Boston and more recently professor of Latin, Spanish and Portuguese at St. John’s Seminary and that of Professor Enildo Garcia of St. Francis College, Brooklyn.
