Ephphatha! (which means "Be opened!") with Foreword by Bishop Sylvester D Ryan, Emeritus. This first volume consisting of sixteen of Father Matt Pennington’s homilies speaks to being open; to acceptance; to embracing God through forgiveness and by lifting others. He relives special moments as a child, a teenager, his seminary life, as a new priest, never forgetting to laugh at himself. While his gift of humor entertains, each Homily provokes reflection, inspires and opens a door to discerning meaning for our lives, reminding us of why we are here and echoing the words spoken by Jesus Christ in Mark's gospel, "Ephphatha!" - that is, "be opened!"
Homilies are organized by the Liturgical Season and include "The Old Man and the Baby", "Under the Tuscan Sun", "Ubi Caritas" and of course, "Ephphatha!" Complete with color photos, this Special Birthday Edition commemorating Father Matt's birthday in 2009, is best when ordered with Premium Paper and in the Hardcover Dust Jacket Version. Discounts are available for 10 or more copies. Contact me directly to get on a list to order with others or order directly from - Denise C. Williams (
