Seasons in the Word, by Fr. John Sandell, is the first of a three-volume collection of homilies covering the Lectionary, including feast days. The book results from decades of prayerful preaching on the Sunday Scriptures by Fr. Sandell to congregations in the Diocese of Fargo.
Useful for priests in their own homiletic preparation, Seasons in the Word, will also be important for lay people who wish to prepare for the upcoming Sunday readings and individual devotion.
John Sandell, a priest of the Fargo Diocese, has served in parish ministry, taught moral theology in a Catholic high school, and been administrator and chaplain at a home for the mentally and developmentally handicapped.
