Item description for Lift Up Your Hearts: Homilies For The 'A' Cycle by Robert Waznak, Osb Guerric DeBona & James A. Wallace...
Overview Homilies for the Sundays and various feasts of the A Cycle. Helpful for those who lead the liturgy as well as those who want to participate more fully in it.
Publishers Description This collection of homilies represents the efforts of three preachers to interpret the lives of a community of faith and lead them deeper into the liturgy and life. The first intent of LIFT UP YOUR HEARTS is to focus on homilies as acts of interpretation, in which: "the preacher does not so much attempt to explain the Scriptures as to interpret the human situation through the Scriptures." This book casts the homilist not so much as a teacher but as a "mediator of meaning"--speaking words that help the community to know itself and to act as the People of God, the Body of Christ, and the dwelling place of the Holy Spirit. In addition, these homilies are intended to move the parishioners toward the act of Eucharist, to giving praise and thanks here and now, and then beyond the Church doors, out into the world to take part in the mission of the Church.
