Solemnity of Christ the King

November 22, 2014

SHEPHERD OF THE SHEEP

Our readings today remind us that a king does not rule by authority; but rather, by his service to the people in his care.

Thus says the Lord God:  I myself will look after and tend my sheep.

 The scattered sheep

The Lost sheep.

The sheep in need of rescue

The sheep longing for a pasture.

 I myself will tend my sheep says the Lord God.  And give them rest.

In these rather poetic and forceful readings, we are challenged to see the worthiness in others as well as in our selves.  We are reminded that while a king has authority and power, he is more like Christ when he serves.

CLICK HERE for the readings for the Solemnity of Christ the King (Ezekiel 34:11-12, 15-17; Psalm 23; 1 Corinthians 15:20-26, 28; Matthew 25:31-46).
