Hungry, And You Fed Me
Foreword: by Meredith Gould, PhD
Hungry, And You Fed Me: Homilies and Reflections for Cycle C is a collection of stories about our stories crafted by superb storytellers. Here, we’re invited to engage with scripture at a deeper level by people of abiding faith whose work and words are grounded in theological education and active ministry.

I have been fortunate throughout most of my life to enjoy the fruits of great homilists—whether it was growing up in Colts Neck and listening to Fr. Bill Bausch, or at the University of Scranton enjoying the wisdom of the Jesuits, or in my home parish having our pastor, Msgr. Walt Nolan warming the congregation with one of his many homiletic stories.
As a deacon in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Trenton, New Jersey, I’m passionate about great homilies. For those of us privileged to preach, homilies provide us a unique opportunity to break open the gospel message.
Over the past decade, through various occasions and contacts, I’ve been blessed to encounter Christian clergy and laity who are gifted with the ability to spark transformation by touching people’s lives through their homilies, sermons, and reflections.
A year ago I launched this project, leading me to eventually reach out to a dozen men and women who are some of the best of the best when it comes to breaking open the Word of God. My goal was to compile and edit a book that would feed the heart and souls of the readers and act as a vehicle to raise money to feed the hungry and homeless. My hope and prayer is that this book does both.
Under the moniker of Homilists for the Homeless, these writers and preachers have generously donated their material so that proceeds from this book can be given to the four charities selected for this volume. This first of three books begins with Cycle C of the Lectionary for Mass, which starts the First Sunday of Advent 2012 (and every three years thereafter).
As Christians we are called to use the gifts that God has given each of us. Called to spread the good news of Christ. Called to reach out to those who live on the margins. Called to clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, and feed the hungry. May these gifted words do exactly that and bring blessings to you and yours.
