These two seasons pose particular difficulties for the preacher because these feasts -- especially Christmas -- have been adopted into our culture in a secularized form that has little to do with their original religious meaning, contends Viladesau.In addition to homilies for the Christmas and Easter seasons, there are homiletic reflections on the Christian significance of birth marriage and deaths. The homilies, of three to four pages in length, make an engaging connection between Christian faith and contemporary existence in a secularized world.
