Father Hunolt's Sermons
Although delivered in the 1700s, every sermon of Father Francis Hunolt is just what Catholics, as well as others, are in great need of hearing today. They are interesting in the highest degree, and they arouse attention and keep it fixed without difficulty, so that there is a constant desire in the reader to know what is coming next. Let me quote from one of Father Hunolt's sermons: "To hear the word of God in sermons with a good and very good heart is a sure sign of predestination to heaven. They who hear the word of God in sermons with a good and very good heart have a certain mark, or predestination that they shall one day see God in heaven, and love Him in eternal joys. The holy Fathers and spiritual authors are unanimous on this point."
Originally printed in 1886. Impr 1884.
