Homilies on the Sundays and Feasts of the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite
Kenneth Baker, SJ
The seventy-five homilies found here cover each of the Sundays and several of the major Feast days of the liturgical year and were composed specifically to assist those priests who occasionally or regularly celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in Latin according to the 1962 Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. The number of such celebrations has been increasing by the year especially since the appearance of “Summorum Pontificum”, the Motu Proprio issued by Pope Benedict XVI in July 2007.
It is the author’s hope that these brief homilies will be helpful not only to priests but also to members of the laity who follow the Mass closely as well as to those attentive readers who hear God’s word proclaimed in each Sunday liturgy and are eager to delve more deeply into its meaning.
