Nov 30, 2017
Homily given at the 4:30 p.m. Vigil Mass on Saturday, November 18, 2017, the 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic Church. Fr. Ed notes that today's first reading and Gospel parallel the diligent wife of Proverbs 31 and the profitable servants of the parable in Matthew. Blessed Solanus Casey, who was beatified in Detroit today, is another example of a profitable servant who shows us what is possible if we say yes to the will of Jesus and the power of His Spirit at work in our eyes.
