Catechesis: Sermons for the Christian Year

Book Overview
Taken together, the sermons collected here record a priestly life spent in pursuit of the simplest yet most profound truths of Christianity. They underscore Father Mead's insistence on returning again and again, in times of war and of peace, of plenty and of want, to the proper answer to the question Jesus once put to his disciples: Who do men say that I am? Father Mead understands that the message and mission of the crucified and risen Lord Jesus is in fact the most radical story in human history-a story at once so fundamental and overwhelming that it requires no embroidery and little elaboration. The core is sufficient, for the core is Christ, and Christ is everything. -Jon Meacham Pulitzer Prize-winning author
