Homily given at the 8:45 a.m. Mass on Sunday, January 25, 2015, the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time, by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic Church. The story of Jonah is an encouragement to all of us who think that God can't possibly use us unless our motives are perfectly pure. God tries to explain to Jonah that the Jews are the Chosen, but everyone is loved by God, even our enemies. Every person is loved by God and deserving of dignity and respect because all people are created in the image and likeness of God. What does that mean for our lives?
