Description

This book by Father Demetrius Dumm, O.S.B., contains eighty-two short reflections on passages of Scripture which address, from various perspectives, the perennial human problem of mortality.

A prominent theme in these reflections is, therefore, an invitation to trust the goodness of God in situations where we experience loss of control and the consequent need to rely on a higher power for love and support.

These reflections also remind us that reliance on the goodness of God need not be a desperate last resort but can be in fact a joyful discovery that will illuminate the whole landscape of our lives.

Softcover. 272 pages. 

About the Author:

Rev. Demetrius Dumm, O.S.B., was a monk and priest of Saint Vincent Archabbey in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, who died in 2013 at the age of 90,

He received a doctorate in theology from the Atheneum of Saint Anselm in Rome. After graduate studies at the Ecole Biblique in Jerusalem, he was awarded the License in Sacred Scripture from the Pontifical Biblical Commission in Vatican City. Father Demetrius taught Sacred Scripture at Saint Vincent Seminary for over 50 years and was rector of the Seminary for 17 years.

He was the author of So We Do Not Lose Heart: Biblical Wisdom for All Our Days; Flowers in the Desert: A Spirituality of the Bible; Cherish Christ Above All: The Bible in the Rule of Benedict; A Mystical Portrait of Jesus: New Perspectives on John’s Gospel; and Praying the Scriptures. He also co-authored, with Father Campion Gavaler, O.S.B., The Sunday Homilies, Saint Vincent Archabbey: Cycle A; The Sunday Homilies, Saint Vincent Archabbey, Cycle B; and The Sunday Homilies, Saint Vincent Archabbey, Cycle C. 

So We Do Not Lose Heart won a national Catholic Press Association book award in 2018 in the category “Backlist Beauty.” So We Do Not Lose Heart, took third place in the category. The book published by Archabbey Publications in 2006, then reprinted in 2010 and in 2017.

“A book that lovingly points the way to ‘a happy ending’ for all believers. Inspiring reflections on mortality and God’s unfailing love to see us through,” the judges wrote.

The Sunday Homilies books were based on the long-running Sunday Homily column that he and Father Demetrius co-wrote of the Archabbey website, www.saintvincentarchabbey.org. 

The Sunday Homilies, Saint Vincent Archabbey, Cycle B, by Father Campion  P. Gavaler, O.S.B., and Father Demetrius R. Dumm, O.S.B., received a Catholic Press Association first place book award in the category Scripture: Popular Studies in 2015. The judges’ commentary noted:

“In this book, two fine scholars write simple, practical homily reflections for every Sunday of the Liturgical year. Each homily reflection provides a concise, insightful summary of the Gospel, obviously the fruit of years of study and contemplation of the passage! Each reflection also includes a wise life application that truly enables the Sunday Gospel to be lived in the ordinary moments of life that occur every day of the week. The insights into the human heart provided in the Life Implication section of each chapter are profound. There are no excess words, which provides an example for homilists.”
