Christ the King

 “I was naked and you clothed me; sick, and you visited me.”

Matthew 25:31-46

Today we celebrate the feast of CHRIST THE KING and acknowledge that we have only one King, the Lord of heaven and earth; we are invited to reflect on what this feast means for us personally. Not only do we acknowledge Jesus as our King, but we are also invited to reflect on our own calling as priest, prophet and King. When we look at the life of Jesus, we get a greater understanding of what it means to be king. Jesus’ kingship was one of service and love. With this in mind, it is not surprising that the church invites us to meditate on this Matthew, which speaks to us about love and service as necessary means for entering into the Kingdom of God.

As we read this passage today, which words catch our attention? What do you think Jesus is trying to say to you? How do we welcome, feed, visit, and clothe the people in our lives? Are we aware that each time we are attentive to the needs of others or extend a kind gesture and word, we are really serving Jesus? Lord, as we meditate on your Kingship, may we also be aware that what we do for the “least of these we do unto you.”
