FEAST  OF CHRIST  THE  KING

Today we celebrate the Feast of Christ our King, the one who died for us and rose triumphant.  We ask for the grace to live as people of his kingdom of justice, love and peace.

 

GOSPEL  REFLECTION

This judgement scene contains surprises for us. One is that nobody is condemned for doing wrong, but for their failure to do good. Jesus is telling us that being his disciple is a positive choice about how we live and relate to others. Another way of saying this is that the aim of Christian living is not me-centred (about my personal sanctification) but other-centred (about responding to the needs of others). Another surprise is to hear Jesus tell us that when we do something for another, he considers it as done to himself. The story is about the judgement of the whole of humanity. It presents an ideal of society in which human relationships at all levels are governed by the law of love.
