Little Essays that go a long way Sep 4, 2008
This book is a collection of short (hence, only 3 stars) essays on the reading Cycles of the liturgical year. As a preacher, the book helped me to have a sense of the larger context in which the weekly passages are to be found.
Great for small group or catechist/RCIA leaders for a good overview of the liturgical cycle.
Written without scholarly jargon or tedious material.
