Homily given at the 4:30 p.m. Mass on Saturday, December 15, 2018, the Third Sunday of Advent, Gaudete Sunday, by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic Church.
In today's Gospel, when people ask John the Baptist what they should do to prepare for the coming Messiah, he doesn't answer as they might expect. Rather, he invites them to be generous. As we act as stewards of the treasure that God has given us, we can be generous because we can trust the King to take care of us, His people.
