Praise-the response to the Word of God that recognizes God is God
Blessing - the divine dialog between God and his people
Preaching-the proclamation of the Good News
By demonstrating how prayerful contemplation of the Gospels fills us with meaning, purpose and joy, To Praise, To Bless, To Preach helps direct all Christians, ordained or lay, on the journey to the happiness and holiness for which we have been created,
Purposely designed to answer the Holy Father's call to a New Evangelization, To Praise, To Bless, To Preach is a fresh approach to Catholic interpretation of Sacred Scripture with a special emphasis on how to apply the Truth of the Gospel to daily life.
To praise, to bless, and to preach is what the Gospel calls, enables, and empowers every believer to do. Now, in an innovative, creative approach to the Gospels of the Sundays of the B Cycle, Peter John Cameron, OP, presents a series of short meditations intended to be, in his words, "spiritual bouillon cubes ready to be added by the reader to the heated waters of the Spirit so as to make a satisfying evangelical soup."
While particularly useful as a homily preparation tool, these reflections also show how Jesus lives in the Word of God and how the Word of God brings each of us to our fullest potential in life.
