NEW SUNDAY HOLY DAY LITURGIES: Year B
Since it first appeared, Flor McCarthy has listened closely to the comments and advice of priests who used this book. As a result, this new revision of New Sunday & Holy Day Liturgies contains a lot of new material, including new homilies. There are two additional major improvements.
The first of these is a better Scripture Note focussed on ensuring that they convey the essence of the readings. Flor McCarthy states: ‘Unless we understand the message of the Scriptures, we really have no right to be preaching.’
The second improvement concerns parts of the Mass such as the Introduction, the Confiteor, the Prayer of the Faithful, which are now more closely related to the particular feast (or Sunday) that is being celebrated. The aim is to capture the ‘flavour’ of that feast and to convey something of its meaning and spirit. They contain a good mix of comfort, inspiration, and challenge.

Flor McCarthy is building on the observation of Danish writer Karen Blixen that a storyteller has the capacity to create for people, hard-working in real life, another sort of reality which in some way or another can satisfy them.
