As regular readers of "The Good Word" know, one of our frequent contributors is Father Richard Leonard, an Australian Jesuit who splits his time between the Jesuit Theological College in Australia and the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome. If you’d like to hear more from Father Leonard, be sure to pick up his book Preaching to the Converted: On Sundays and Feast Days Throughout the Year. While I’m it, let me bump another book by a regular contributor: Sundays with Jesus by James DiGiacomo, S.J. Father DiGiacomo recently retired from teaching religious studies at Regis High School in Manhattan, and now lives at America House. Father DiGiacomo is also a regular contributor to America, and the author of the widely read article Little Gray Cells. Tim Reidy, Online Editor
