SickandYouCaredforMeWell it’s that time of year, with the First Sunday of Advent come a new Liturgical Year (Cycle B) and with that comes the last volume of the Homilies for the Homeless Series titled, Sick, And You Cared For Me (2014).

Those familiar with the previous two volumes (Hungry, And You Fed Me [2012], and Naked, And You Clothed Me [2013]) have come to appreciate the richly diverse collection of homilies and scriptural reflections that follow the Sunday celebrations and Solemnities of each respective Gospel cycle of the Liturgical Year.

The list of contributors is both impressive and has grown since volume one (and I’m not just saying “impressive” because I’m one of the contributors) — a quick glance at the list of authors illustrates what a rich resource this really is.

In addition to being a particularly helpful resource for preachers and an insightful book of reflections for those in the pews, the production of this series (Homilies for the Homeless) earns its title, for all the profits from the books goes to support several charities in the North East U.S. that feed, shelter, and cloth those in need.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough!  I know that I’m biased as a contributor, but precisely as one I want to attest to the commitment of each author and, most especially, the editor Jim Knipper, all of whom give of their time and talents to offer this resource to the church and help raise money for many of those who most need it. Order your’s today! (and they make great Christmas gifts!)

  1. I have all three volumes and I can’t recommend them highly enough–great homilies and for a great cause. Thanks Father Dan to you and all the other contributors and to Deacon Jim Knipper his inspiration and leadership on this worthwhile project.
