Homily given at the 9:00 a.m. Mass on Sunday, April 7, 2019, the Fifth Sunday of Lent, by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic Church. 

Fr. Ed reflects on today's Gospel of the raising of Lazarus (from Year A). Even though Jesus knew that He was about to raise Lazarus from the dead, when He saw Mary's and Martha's tears, He wept. He shares in our suffering and raises us up. 

As we prepare to enter into Holy Week, we want to avoid the danger of falling into "auto-pilot." We need to recognize Who we are praying to and focus on what we are saying. The more we do so, the more the grace of Holy Week will fill our lives.
