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.

They exude a quiet confidence in the message that the Word brings to people, week after week as they go about their daily lives. The focus is on the story, rather than the setting, on the present, rather than the past. Fr. Sandell appeals to the universal meaning of the stories, told anew through the seasons of the life of the church today.
Fr. Sandell's collection is available to those who need the assistance of an experienced pastor to frame their Sunday reflections.
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.
