Dec 18, 2013
Homily given at the 11:30 a.m. Mass on Sunday, December 15, 2013, the Third Sunday of Advent, by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic Church. On Gaudete Sunday, we are commanded to rejoice. The Church's vision for ecumenism, the last principle in the Christ the King Mission Statement, is one of the reasons we can rejoice. All who are baptized are our brothers and sisters in Christ and so are family to us.
Key words: rejoice, Gaudete Sunday, ecumenism, mission
