But the King has a better idea: stay focused on Him and let the power of the Holy Spirit minister to us the truth of the Scripture that “The joy of the Lord is our strength!

September 19, 2021, 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time homily: Fr. Ed Fride

Homily given at the 9:00 a.m. Mass on Sunday, September 19, 2021, the 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time, by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic Church.  * * The Lord upholds my life. No amount of error in a person justifies treating that person in a way that demeans the essential dignity that is theirs as sons or daughters of God. The image of God that we all bear is not effaced by error and so must always be taken into consideration. The Catechism is rather eloquent about the sinful nature of detraction and slander. Mercy, gentleness, dignity, and respect must always be present in our proclamation of the truth. If they are not, the King will not honor our attempts, because He only honors what is done His way.

Homily given at the 9:00 a.m. Mass on Sunday, August 29, 2021, the 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic Church.  "If we receive into our hearts and minds this Word with its capacity to save us, then we will have a solid criterion that we can use to judge the truth of all those voices clamoring for our attention. Since it is totally unlikely that that barrage of “information” will lessen, it is particularly crucial that we immerse ourselves in the truth that we know we can trust. He Who is the Word made flesh will guide us as we seek Him."
