Item description for The Word in and out of Season: Homilies for the Major Feasts, Christmas, Easter, Weddings and Funerals by Richard Viladesau...
Overview Reflections on the scripture readings for Christmas and Easter and for feasts of the year, as well as funeral and wedding homilies.
Publishers Description In the fourth volume of his popular series, veteran pastor and educator Richard Viladesau has written a collection of homilies for the seasons of Christmas and Easter. These two seasons "pose particular difficulties for the preacher because these feasts -- especially Christmas -- have been adopted into our culture in a secularized form that has little to do with their original religious meaning", contends Viladesau.
In addition to homilies for the Christmas and Easter seasons, there are homiletic reflections on the Christian significance of birth marriage and deaths. The homilies, of three to four pages in length, make an engaging connection between Christian faith and contemporary existence in a secularized world.
