Written shortly before he passed away in February 2008, these short sermons by Fr. Burghardt fill an enormous need. Busy preachers of all denominations will find them an inspiring resource. They are also superior spiritual reading. Social justice themes give the book a challenging flavor. Those who have cherished previous books by Fr. Burghardt as well as those discovering him for the first time will find his final gift to us a small treasure.
