Homily given at the 9:00 a.m. Mass on Sunday, July 8, 2018, the 14th Sunday in Ordinary Time, by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic Church. This homily is the first in a series of homilies on the Mass.

Fr. Ed notes that the Psalm response for today speaks of fixing our eyes on the Lord, something that we can do literally at the Consecration. But, just as the people of Nazareth in today's Gospel were so familiar with Jesus that they couldn't accept what He was doing and saying, so we, too, can become too familiar with the Mass and go into "auto-pilot". To avoid that, Jesus invites us to prepare for Mass by praying, reading Scripture, and praying every day, "Lord, prepare us for Sunday."
