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

2 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
