Homilies by Fr. Michael Williams, SJ, Compiled for New Book
A collection of 13 homilies by Fr. Michael A. Williams, SJ, has been published as a book entitled, Building your Jerusalem: Father Michael's Simple Truths to Guide your Faith. These short homilies, developed during Fr. Williams' summer ministry in London over the years, helps to apply Gospel teachings to situations people encounter in everyday life.
Proceeds from the book will go to a program headed by the book's editor, Sally Baffour, and her Thank You Libraries, to build a library in a poor township in South Africa. Fr. Williams is an Associate Professor of English at Spring Hill College in Mobile, AL.
