Homily given at the 9:00 a.m. Mass on Sunday, Sept. 16, 2018, the 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time, by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic Church.
In today's Gospel, we see that Peter, who has just been named by Jesus the first pope, immediately falls and is rebuked by Jesus. Yet Jesus does not remove the call that He's placed on Peter's life, nor does He do so with us. Jesus invites us to serve others with kindness and love, even though we ourselves are broken, fallen people. If we ask Him, He will give us the grace we need to shine as lights in the darkness.
