Product Description

Review

“The title Between the Ambo and the Altar could have been extended to include Summoned to Mission. Fr. DeBona provides the reader not only with insights into understanding God’s word, but also offers ‘tactics’ on how to translate the word into everyday life. What a great service this volume is to preachers and students of Scripture.”
        Bishop Robert Morneau
        Auxiliary Bishop of Green Bay, Wisconsin



“A wise, timely, and practical resource for liturgical preachers! Reminding homilists that the Scriptures and the liturgy form a single banquet of the word of God, Guerric DeBona, OSB, offers a creative recipe for moving from Scripture, to liturgical texts and rituals, to the homily. The challenge for the preacher is clear: to serve ‘fresh bread’ rather than ‘stale crumbs’ to those who hunger for richer fare from the pulpit.”
        Mary Catherine Hilkert, O.P.
        Professor of Theology
        University of Notre Dame



“Down-to-earth, sensible, wise, inspirational, and, above all, useful advice for anyone who preaches. This fine new book, by an author known for his plainspoken approach to life, will be a boon for both pastors, preachers and anyone who considers themselves ‘hearers of the word.’"
        James Martin, SJ, author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything



“A groundbreaking and much needed commentary on the Sunday Liturgy that will benefit presiders, deacons, and all involved in liturgical ministry and liturgical preparation. Insightful commentaries on the Scripture readings accompanied, where appropriate, by comments on the prayers and prefaces of the day. A method for homily preparation and keen insights about the day's liturgy offered but never forced, suggestions offered but nothing demanded. This is a mature work that serves up things to ponder and pray about, that respects and even encourages the reader to go beyond what is so well stated here to serve the diversity of the Catholic parish today.“
        Rev. Msgr. Kevin Irwin
        The Catholic University of America
        Author of Serving the Body of Christ

A thorough presentation of the links between the lectionary and the Roman Missal which gives the homilist enough data to begin the mills grinding for a homily. Many of the connections are insightful and helpful in crafting the word for the Assembly.
