My Words Will Not Pass Away by Martin Hogan is the sixth book in a highly successful series of reflections on the gospel readings for the weekdays of the liturgical year.

These short reflections attempt to listen to the gospel text on its own terms while showing how it can continue to speak to our church and our world today. The book will appeal to priests in parishes who may wish to prepare a short homily for the weekday Mass, as well as to parishioners who wish to prayerfully reflect on the weekday gospel readings and Lectio Divina groups in parishes.
