The substance underlying ordinary signs, words, and gestures in the liturgy is the theme of this collection of simple homilies offered to nurture Christians on their pilgrimage toward piety and spiritual life.

Through these texts every reader will rediscover additional strength in the elementary religious practices memorized during childhood. For the homilist, the traditional symbols and texts of worship are viewed with a fresh scrutiny. A separate section of homilies for children is included.

Dr. Balthasar Fischer was a professor at the Theological Faculty of Trier. In the international academic world he was widely regarded as one of the foremost liturgical scholars of his time.
