Dec 14, 2012

Homily given at the 8:45 a.m. Mass on Sunday, December 9, 2012, the Second Sunday of Advent, by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic Church. On this Sunday, which occurs during the celebration of Hanukkah, Fr. Ed recounts the origin of Hanukkah, stemming from the rededication of the Temple recorded in the Book of Maccabees (1 Mac 4:36-58). St. Nicholas, like the Maccabees, was also a great man of faith, who boldly stood up against the Arian heresy. Advent is an invitation for us to grow in faith, to be like those great men and women of the past and stand for the truth of the Gospel.

Key words: Advent, faith, Hanukkah, Maccabees, St. Nicholas
