Through the use of meaningful quotes and colorful examples, these homiletic reflections on the liturgical readings for the Sundays and major feast days of cycle B are meant to inform, edify and inspire the faithful who read or hear them. The message is so clearly expounded and with such an economy of words that the profound scholarship behind it never obscures the practical application to the everyday lives of the people to whom it is addressed.

“In preaching retreats to priests, but also to religious and laity, I find today a great hunger among many to meet Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior in the immediacy of deeper prayer in the Spirit. They are turning to commentaries on the revealed books of Holy Scripture. Priests, but also the laity, are searching for insights from homiletic commentaries for preaching, teaching religion or as aids to personal and group prayer. To them, I highly recommend this present volume.” George A. Maloney, SJ, in the Foreword

About the Author: Internationally published author of spiritual and theological works, veteran retreat master and preacher of novenas and parish missions, F. Herbert F. Smith, SJ, was for nine years Province Director of the Apostleship of Prayer for the seven states of the Maryland Province of the Society of Jesus. He presently continues as its Director for the Archbishop of Philadelphia. The fact of his having spent almost a year in Israel, traveling, researching, and consulting scholars has given a flavor of immediacy to his homilies and spiritual writings. Fr. Smith is a frequent guest speaker on International Sacred Heart Radio and a member of the Fellowship of Catholic Scholars. In addition to Sunday Homilies, Cycle AB and C, he has also written Homilies on the Heart of Jesus and the Apostleship of Prayer (Alba House, 2000).
