Reviews - What do customers think about Homilies for Weekdays: Year 1?

Insights and Inspiration  Nov 5, 2006
A priest for more than 50 years, Don Talafous, O.S.B., Ph.D., has served Saint John's University, Collegeville, Minn., as a professor, university chaplain, and alumni chaplain. As the title indicates, this work features reflections on Year 1 weekday readings. It offers insights and inspiration for those called upon to deliver homilies and those seeking a deeper understanding of Scripture. The entries, most of which cover less than a full page, contain ideas tying one or more of the readings to our daily life. In addition, Fr. Talafous emphasizes the "whole story" of the liturgical cycle, providing background and making connections to earlier passages.

A good example of these techniques occurs in a reflection on Num 11: 4b-15. Fr. Talafous describes Numbers as a book similar to Leviticus in that both may seem far from our own experience. The reading describes the Israelites wandering in the desert, "a crowd of grumpy old men, grumpy old women, grumpy kids." In our own world, we can become bored, angry, and resentful as the Israelites were. Like the Israelites we are looking for a sign of God's presence, one "more dramatic than the Eucharist." But, Fr. Talafous writes, God is most likely to help us in simple ways, such as our contacts with good and encouraging people. "The Eucharist reminds us to look for God in this life we live, in this place, with these people."
