Homily given at the 9:00 a.m. Mass on Sunday, August 9, 2020, the 19th Sunday in Ordinary Time, by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic Church.

In today's first reading, Elijah gives us an example of how we should respond to the increasingly difficult circumstances around us:  listen for the still, small voice of the Lord. The Gospel shows us what happens when we take our eyes off Jesus -- but the Lord Jesus doesn't punish Peter, but immediately comes when Peter calls out to Him. In the midst of these challenging times, we need to do what we can to keep our eyes on Jesus, listen to His voice, and draw ever closer to Him.

Key words:  hope, trust, prayer, contemplation, St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, Edith Stein, St. Dominic
