Homily given at the 9:00 a.m. Mass on Sunday, October 15, 2017, the Carmelite Solemnity of St. Teresa of Jesus (Avila), by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic Church. After explaining why we are celebrating the feast of St. Teresa of Jesus instead of the 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Fr. Ed talks about how St. Teresa invites us to deepen our union with the Lord Jesus. That union requires both humility and courage, the courage that allows God to use the saints--like St. Francis, the children at Fatima, and the Blessed Mother--to bring people to Himself.
