Homily given at the 9:00 a.m. Mass on Sunday, August 26, 2018, the 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time, by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic Church. 

Today's Gospel contains one of the saddest verses in the New Testament: "As a result of this, many [of] his disciples returned to their former way of life and no longer accompanied him." Jesus had revealed Himself as the Blessed Eucharistic Lord. Some didn't understand how this could happen and so walked away.

Today, we're in the midst of a great crisis in the Church. Some bishops and priests have been abusive, and as a result, some people are walking away. What should be our response? As we are so sorry for the terrible crimes that have happened, grieve for those who have been hurt, and respond in other ways, through it all we must keep our eyes fixed on Jesus.
