1 Harold A. Buetow ALL THINGS MADE NEW, CYCLE B

A new creation, a new heavens, a new earth, a new appreciation of life, a new outlook on death – new persons, new values, a new understanding of law and our responsibilities under it, new symbols, new organizations, new hope: all these were inaugurated with the coming of Jesus. The “good news” which the Gospels proclaim always brings with it something “new”. A new day dawned for the human race with the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. It takes awhile to incorporate all the ramifications of that fact into our daily lives. It takes a lot of study, reflection, living, and most of all prayer. The thoughts presented in these pages are the fruit of a careful pondering of the liturgical readings for the Sundays and Holy Days of Cycle B in the light of the lived experience of the men and women of today as they approach the beginning of a new millennium. Priests, deacons, lay ministers and the average person in the pew will find much to excite and inspire them here. 283 pages

5 Harold A. Buetow, PhD, JD BUETOW, 3 VOL. WEEKDAY SET

Homilists today face many challenges. Their congregations consist of old and young, rich and poor, educated and not so well educated. There are young college students who are tired of homilies that are too elementary and say nothing worthwhile to the problems that they face. There are others who feel that they are spiritually deprived by homilies that are too bland. And there are still others who are looking for some insights into the secular world in which they live and which has no time for church or the things of God. Preaching, of course, is everybody’s job but it is principally the responsibility of the priest or deacon who is presiding at the liturgy. These three volumes of homilies for the weekdays of Ordinary Time are an invaluable resource for them. Thirst For Life Vol. 1 focuses on Mark, The New Out of the Old Vol. 2 on Matthew, and Rejoicing in Hope Vol. 3 on Luke. 3 volumes 1063 pages

7 Harold A. Buetow Embrace Your Renewal A Thought a Day for Lent

For the Christian, Lent means an opportunity to banish ignorance, to deaden lust, to enrich the poor, to defend children, to make decent medical care as globally ubiquitous as Coca-Cola, and to end many world catastrophes. Mortification guides our imagination and memory by keeping away useless or harmful thoughts, and it may also help control the tongue from useless and frivolous conversations or gossip. All of these topics and many, many more are presented in an informative and entertaining fashion in these thoughtful reflections for the weekdays of Lent. They are ideal for homilists as well as for the average person in the pew.169 pp.

8 Father Harold A. Buetow EMBRACE YOUR RENEWAL A Thought a Day for Lent

The readings for the weekday masses for the first three weeks of Lent take their Gospel reading from Saints Matthew, Mark, and Luke, with emphasis on the cures and works of Jesus. From the fourth week on, Gospel passages are from St. John, centering on the person of the Lord and fitting for those about to commit themselves to him. For the Christian, Lent means an opportunity to banish ignorance, to deaden lust, to enrich the poor, to defend children, to make decent medical care as globally ubiquitous as Coca-Cola, and to end many world catastrophes.

9 Rev. Harold A. Buetow GOD STILL SPEAKS: LISTEN! CYCLE A

Some today seem to feel that God’s speaking to people happened only long ago with the prophets, with Jesus and the Apostles, or perhaps with a relatively few more recent saints. But Jesus, our Emmanuel, our “God with us,” promised that he would never leave us, that his Spirit would guide us to all truth and give us the power to be God’s witnesses to the ends of the earth. The reason we do not always hear when God speaks is because we do not always listen as carefully or as prayerfully as we ought. When we learn to do so we will find that we will recognize in what we hear our call to holiness, the definition of true greatness, the meaning of faith and trust, the loneliness of leadership, and the joy which comes from suffering offered up in union with the Lord. These reflections on the liturgical readings of Cycle A for Sundays and Holy Days will help us to focus on listening to God’s word, and having listened to obey the message that we’ve heard. Priest, deacon, lay minister and the average person in the pew will find much to ponder and practice here. 303 pages

10 Father Harold A. Buetow, PhD, JD LIFE OUT OF DEATH A Thought a Day for the Easter Season

Jesus’ resurrection celebrates something special never known before or since. To rise from the dead is so far beyond any human concept, and so much solely God’s work, that people have always had a hard ‘fame trying to comprehend it. In our Nicene Creed we affirm: “I believe in the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.” In celebrating Jesus’ Resurrection, therefore, we celebrate our own as well. For all who follow Christ Easter, stretching from Easter Sunday to Pentecost, is “party time,” a time of stimulated consciousness, an invitation to penetrate more deeply into this mystery of our faith, and to enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. Easter is a season of “alleluia.” For centuries joyful Christians were known as “Easter people,” and Easter was the principal festival on the Church calendar. The central theme of the Easter cycle – the death and Resurrection of Christ – is not merely an historical commemoration, but a here-and-now manifestation in the Christian assembly of Jesus’ glorification, and a fervent prayer for the full realization of the redemption of humankind brought about by Jesus. Like the Jewish Pasch, Easter celebrates deliverance from slavery: in this case the slavery of sin and death. As such it is the ideal time for the initiation of new members into the community of the saved and for their acceptance into the Body of Christ by Baptism, Confirmation, and first Eucharist. All of these themes and more are presented here by the author in a manner both lighthearted and serious as befits the season. These reflections will benefit enormously those who wish to enter more profoundly into the spirit of Easter. 175 pages

13 Harold A. Buetow NEW OUT OF THE OLD, VOL. 2 Weeks 10 through 21 of Ordinary Time

Norman Rockwell had an uncommon ability of depicting in his paintings the facial expressions of his subjects. He did this especially for many covers of the Saturday Evening Post. His works became popular all over the world. He wrote: “One of the most difficult problems in painting magazine covers is thinking up ideas which a majority of readers will understand. The farmer worries about the price of milk; the housewife fusses over the drapes for the dining room; the gossip gossips about Mrs. Purdy’s highfalutin’ airs. I have to think of an idea which will mean something to all of them. And it’s hard to be universal, to find some situation which will strike the farmer, the housewife, the gossip and Mrs. Purdy.” That’s the problem of the homilist, too, which Father Buetow tackles with extraordinary aplomb in this second of his three-volume set of meditations on the Liturgical Readings for the Weekdays of the Year. In the present volume, embracing mostly the gospel according to St. Matthew, the meaning of Jesus is shown to lie in his fulfillment of all that is embraced in the concept of the Jewish Messiah. Hence this volume, which covers weeks ten through twenty-one in the Church’s Ordinary Time, is entitled The New Out of the Old. 377 pages

15 Rev. Harold A. Buetow ODE TO JOY, CYCLE C

On the night before he died, Jesus astonished his disciples by saying,”I have spoken these things to you that my joy may be in you and your joy may be full.” St. Paul’s letters are full of joy. St. James wrote that we should consider it all joy when we encounter various trials. St. Peter spoke about the “indescribable and glorious joy” that comes from knowing and loving Jesus, and St. John states that one of the purposes behind his writing was that our joy might be complete. The Gospel is a message of joy that is meant to be shared. Joy is contagious, but to communicate it homilists must first accept the gift and cultivate it within themselves. One needn’t be a standup comic to have a sense of humor. Extracting the humor from our own mistakes, idiosyncrasies, and faults builds the foundation for a healthy outlook toward ourselves and the world around us. Once we learn to take ourselves less seriously, chances are we will become more able to communicate God’s joy to others. Joy, therefore, pervades this volume of homily reflections—joy and a sense of humor. As Blessed Julian of Norwich wrote: “The greatest honor one can give to Almighty God is to live gladly, joyfully, because of the knowledge of His love.” 283 pages

17 Harold A. Buetow, PhD, JD REJOICING IN HOPE, VOL. 3 Weeks 22 through 34 of Ordinary Time

Homilists today face many challenges. Their congregations consist of old and young, rich and poor, educated and not so well educated. There are young college students who are tired of homilies that are too elementary and say nothing worthwhile to the problems that they are face. There are others who feel that they are spiritually deprived by homilies that are too bland. And there are still others who are looking for some insights into the secular world in which they live and which has no time for church or the things of God. Preaching, of course, is everybody's job but it is principally the responsibility of priest or deacon who presides at the liturgy. He will need all the help he can get. This third volume in a series of Meditations/Homilies for the Weekdays of the Year covers weeks twenty-two through thirty-four and focuses mainly on the gospel of St. Luke, the most joyful of all the gospels. Hence the title, Rejoicing the Hope. 414 pages

18 Harold A. Buetow, PhD, JD THIRST FOR LIFE, VOL. 1 Weeks 1 through 9 of Ordinary Time

Societies fall apart if they lose their fundamental beliefs. There are some signs of this throughout the world — for example, the increasing instability of marriage; competitiveness to the neglect of everyone and everything except work; inequities and discrimination; the fixation on materialism; the deadening impact of mindless jobs; an increase in the number of single parents, mostly mothers, who must work to live; the failure of schools to prepare children for productive, satisfying lives; coarsening of society’s attitude toward love and sexuality; an increase in violent behavior. To survive, we have to escape from a mentality which sees society as just a mass of individuals placed side by side without any concern or responsibility for one another. There are fundamental moral values on which all societies depend, such as respect for truth, for justice, for compassion, for care of the environment, and above all for the sacredness of human life. This current volume is entitled Thirst for Life because the gospels for this portion of the Church year (weeks one through nine in the Church’s Ordinary Time) are mostly from St. Mark, whose gospel, through the active Jesus on the move, shows a thirst for life — divine life — treasured, sought, and given, then and now. 272 pages

19 Father Harold A. Buetow WALK IN THE LIGHT OF THE LORD A Thought a Day for Advent and Christmastide

As these reflections point out, we will find it spiritually advantageous at the beginning of the liturgical year to ask ourselves some questions that are pertinent to the seasons of Advent and Christmas. In the year just ended have I become cold, indifferent, or lazy toward God and the needs of others? Have I been reverent? Do I try to recognize the presence of God in the Eucharist, in the scriptures, and in other people, especially the poor? Is my life a living song of praise for the goodness of God? Is His holiness reflected in the purity of my life - my activities, my relationships, my clothing, my decisions? Do I make room for silence and recollection in my daily life? Am I generous in sharing my time, talents, and resources? What is the key source of power in my life: God, or myself? Do I rejoice in the light of Christ, or in the deceiving lights offered by the world? Do I let my light shine before the world for God’s glory? Taking his cue from the liturgical readings of the day, Father Buetow guides us through our deliberations and helps us find some answers. 192 pages
