In 2012 Fr Brian commenced writing his series of weekly homilies and reflections on the Sunday readings for each of the liturgical years A, B and C and significant feasts. The Reflections are circulated widely throughout the Passionist community. Fr Brian has kindly given us permission to publish his reflections on our website.

Fr Tom McDonough CP, Provincial Superior, Holy Spirit Province, has said that, “For so many of our Passionist family these homilies provide a deeply spiritual link with our Passionist charism.  They provide weekly nourishment for so many in parishes where, as Jesus warned – ‘the children are given stones instead of bread’.  They nurture the many who can no longer get to church sometimes through health, sometimes through disillusionment”.  He added, “Brian probably preaches to more people each week than any of us do on any given Sunday.
