“Speak concisely, say much in few words” (Sir 32:8)
Time is a problem, but every problem is a possibility. The possibility lies in the challenge to come straight to the point of a message.
Pope Francis has taken the advice of Pope Paul VI to be simple, clear and direct, and his daily homilies have a worldwide appeal.
This book offers two very short reflections on the daily gospels. These simple and clear reflections would take two minutes at most and a preacher might use either one or both. The best book is the one that makes you do your own thinking and this book is intended to help preachers develop their own homilies.
Where there is no priest available, this book would be an invaluable help to any group who gathers to pray with the day’s Mass Readings.
