Homilies

Homilies

Homilies preached by priests of the Abbey of the Genesee on various occasions.  

Even though the homilies given here at the Abbey are intended primarily for the monastic community it is hoped there will be a message for the little monk hidden in the heart of nearly everyone. The homilies of Fr. John Eudes can be found on his Homilies Index page.
