AND IT YIELDED A HUNDREDFOLD, Dr. Rudolf V. D’Souza OCD, Homilies Year A, Dhyanavana Publications, Bangalore 2013, pp. 362, Price Rs. 200.

“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 Province

“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 Penha, Em.
