Fabulous little book. The funny thing is, the homilies I thought I'd like I didn't really enjoy, and the ones I figured would be ho-hum, were actually just what I needed.

"Therefore, God created the body, but not illness; and likewise God created the soul, but not sin. Rather, the soul is made evil through a perversion of what is according to nature." Homily Explaining that God is Not the Cause of Evil.

"For if you have become accustomed to being last of all in accord with the commandment of the Lord, when will you be irritated at having your dignity affronted." Homily Against Anger
