Rites of Passage is a much-needed, practical homiletic resource for priests and deacons who preach Christian baptisms, weddings, and funerals. The three authors, a religious priest, a diocesan priest, and a permanent deacon, draw from the scriptural and liturgical resources available to the preacher for these three important ritual moments to suggest ways to build an effective homily. This book will serve as a helpful and engaging resource for priests and deacons in parish life and as a blessing to the faithful.

He is the author of Between the Ambo and the Altar: Biblical Preaching and The Roman Missal, Year A, B, and C. He is also a contributor to Give Us This Day, published by Liturgical Press, and has published several books and articles on preaching, cultural studies, and religious communication.
