Abstract

It is perhaps fitting that this chapter recalls an individual for whom the preached word became a priority.' This was Fr Algernon Brown (1848-78), a young Paulist priest who spent most of his short priestly ministry (a mere four years) at St Paul the Apostle Church on West 59th Street in New York City. He was one of the early pioneers of the Paulist 'five-minute sermons' which began to be preached at Low Masses in 1876 at the Paulist mother Church where he was based. The unidentified author of the Preface to a volume of these sermons, published in 1879, explains the rationale behind the five-minute sermons.
