Your faith should be strong enough to withstand storm.

Wake Up, Lazarus! Volume II (2013) presents research on Sunday liturgies, homilies and pastoral reflections. The conclusion outlines ten paths for renewal.       

In today’s context of church decline in the West, the document of Aparecida of the Fifth General Conference of Latin American Bishops in 2007 proposed a new vision for the church, one of Missionary Discipleship. This vision is pursued throughout the book. Research is presented about the liturgies in 100 churches, 50 in the USA and 50 in Guatemala. The homilies at these churches are then compared to those of evangelical pastors, lay preachers, and  Fr. Robert Barron, now a bishop. One chapter discusses the role of the papacy in church renewal. One more chapter presents basic pastoral concepts, like mystagogy, truth, symbols and metaphors in the bible and the liturgy, obedience, and authority.

Wake Up Lazarus! Volume II: Paths to Catholic Renewal has been exhibited at the 2017 American Library Association Annual which was held last June 23, 2017.
