Walter Burghardt was considered by many to be one of the greatest preachers of the 20th century. Many other preachers often used parts of his preaching for their sermons and homilies which he welcomed. In the foreward to Short Sermons for Preachers on the Run, Fr. James Connor talks about the difference between Sunday and weekday homilies being that the weekday sermons are more personal, less organized and less formal. The sermons of Fr. Burghardt found in this book, even though they were given on Sundays, fall into the weekday category because "these brief, informal and conversatonal homilies open wide a window into Walter's faith, hope and caring in a way his Sunday homilies rarely do." The sermons in Short Sermons cover a wide variety of Sundays and special Masses from Easter to weddings to Jubilee Masses. The short introduction by Fr. Burghardt lets us meet the man so many sermonizers admired as he tell the reader why he put this book together and shares in the sermons some of his spirituality.
