This second in the three year cycle of reflections on the liturgical readings for Sundays and Holy Days has been prepared with the “average” Sunday congregation in mind. Through the use of meaningful quotes and colorful examples, these brief homilies are meant to inform, edify and inspire those who read or hear them. Scripture is once again at the center of these reflections, and its application to the problems and concerns of daily life is always cogent, clear and timely. Priest and lay person alike will find the message in these pages helpful in preparing their own thoughts for each Sunday and Holy Day celebration.

S. Joseph Krempa's Captured Fire: The Sunday Homilies -- Cycle A was published by ST PAULS (Staten Island, NY) in 2004. His Cycle B was published in 2005 along with Cycle C. Krempa, pastor of Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish, Winchester, VA presents homilies for every Sunday of the liturgical year along with some solemnities and feasts. According to the book, the reflections have been prepared for the average Sunday congregation. Each two- to three-page homily, according to the book, is "meant to inform, edify, and inspire those who read or hear them." The Scripture texts form the center of the reflections with a cogent, clear, and timely application to the problems and concerns of daily life. --Mark G. Boyer in The Priest, November 2006

This book is arranged in three parts: 1. Sundays during the Seasons of the Year (e.g., Advent, Lent, etc.), 2. Sundays of Ordinary Time, and 3. Solemnities and Feasts of the Year. Each homily is from two to three pages in length, so it can be satisfactorily used in most parishes. Priests and lay people will benefit from the thoughts presented here in preparing or presenting their own ideas. Vivid quotations and stimulating examples will enlighten, encourage, and instruct those who read or hear these homilies. The reflections focus on the Scriptures of the day, applying them to the predicaments of daily life in a compelling, simple and suitable way. --Jovian P. Lang, O.F.M. in Catholic Library World, March 2006
