Jul 22, 2014
Homily given at the 11:30 a.m. Mass on Sunday, July 20, 2014, the 16th Sunday in Ordinary Time, by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic Church. Today's Gospel is the parable of the wheat and the weeds (Matthew 13:24-43). The weeds, like the ground in last Sunday's parable, do not have a choice about being weeds. But people can change, as many of the greatest saints of the Church prove. We need to be wheat, wheat that lovingly, truthfully invite the weeds to change!
