“In the Liturgical Year A in the Catholic Church’s lectionary of
Scripture readings for Mass, the Gospel passage almost every Sunday is
taken from St. Matthew. In the New Testament we meet St. Matthew only
indirectly through the Gospel that bears his name. Matthew’s Gospel is
one of the longest books in the New Testament and has exercised great
influence in Christian life over the centuries. It has even been called
the most important book ever written. Fr. Rudolf has already published
Homilies for Cycle B and C and now with this publication the Cycle
becomes complete. Though there are a number of books published to assist
Catholic Preachers, the compendium of Fr. Rudolf is one of its kind, a
treasure to be stored in the book shelf of every preacher.”: Rev. Dr.
Archibald Gonsalves, OCD, President: IPCI; Provincial: Karnataka Goa
“Fr. Rudolf is the author of 27 publications (books, articles, DVDs and
CDs). Now I learn that he has completed a Trilogy of Homilies on the
three year cycle of liturgy. The first volume was published in 2011 for
Year B titled “The Mustard Seed”, the second volume published last year
for Year C titled “A Sower Went Out to Sow” and the next one that has
come out for the Year A is ‘And it Yielded A Hundredfold”: Bishop Bosco
