Sunday homily reflections of Father Demetrius Dumm, O.S.B., and Father Campion Gavaler, O.S.B., are a collection of scholarly insights on the gospel that contain a beautiful simplicity. They are more than academic exercises. They are the result of both priests being immersed in monastic contemplation. Their commentaries go directly to the essence of the gospel message without useless details and distinctions that distract from its spirit. Their down-to-earth applications of the gospel to daily living also reveal that their profound understanding of it cannot but be the result of the powers of contemplation for comprehending the essence of life. -- Rev. Eugene Hemrick, National Institute for the Renewal of the Priesthood.

Father Demetrius Dumm, O.S.B. (1923-2013), a former rector and professor of Scripture at Saint Vincent Seminary in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, was the author of Flowers in the Desert: A spirituality of the Bible; Cherish Christ Above All: The Bible in the Rule of Benedict: A Mystical Portrait of Jesus, New Perspectives on John's Gospel; Praying the Scriptures and So We Do Not Lose Heart: Biblical Wisdom for All Our Days. In addition to studies at Saint Vincent Seminary, Father Demetrius earned a Doctor of Sacred Theology Degree from the Pontifical Institute of Sant' Anselmo, Rome. Father Campion Gavaler, O.S.B., studied at Saint Vincent Seminary, Notre Dame, and received the S.T.L. degree from Sant' Anselmo in Rome. His article, Theology of the Sermon as Part of the Mass, (Worship March 1964) explains that the purpose of a homily is to convey the good news of the Lord's presence to redeem our present situation -- however hopeless it may appear to be. He taught theology at Saint Vincent College and Seminary and was visiting professor at Penn State and Seton Hill. He has also served as academic dean, provost and acting president of Saint Vincent College.Review:
Father Demetrius and Father Campion, Benedictine monks of Saint Vincent Archabbey, enable Gospel passages long familiar to us to find new life in their relevance to our own experience. These homilies, based on sound scholarship, will provide an excellent resource for homilists, teachers, religious and lay persons who are seeking a deeper understanding of what it means to live a life of biblical faith in the contemporary world. --Sister Patricia McCann, R.S.M., former associate professor of Church History, Saint Vincent Seminary.
