Homily given at the 11:30 a.m. Mass on Sunday, August 30, 2015, the 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic Church. Fr. Ed focuses on our understanding and perception of law. He encourages us to fight the urge to view law as a burden, rather, to see it as the Jewish people did in the Old Testament. The Jewish understanding of the law was that it was a gift, a gift given to them by God in order to make them a more holy people. These rules, these laws, were constant reminders that they were set apart as Christians. We too are set apart, called to transform the world with the light of the Gospel.
