Homily given at the 9:00 a.m. Mass on Sunday, December 15, 2019, the Third Sunday of Advent, Gaudete Sunday, by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic Church.
Fr. Ed continues his series on Pope St. John Paul the Great's four pillars of spirituality that help us to grow in union with Jesus: the Eucharistic, contemplative, charismatic, and Marian.
Today, Fr. Ed focused on the charismatic pillar. On this Sunday when we are commanded to "Rejoice!", Fr. Ed reminds us that Jesus gives us the power of the Spirit so that we will have the power to rejoice.
