November 25, 2012 – The Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the King
Dn 7:13-14; Ps 93:1, 1-2, 5; Rv 1:5-8; Jn 18:33b-37
Today we celebrate the feast of Christ the King. He is the greatest king there is yet He does not sit on a golden throne. He hangs on a cross. As the King of Kings, Jesus hows us what true greatness is. It is loving and serving one another, giving ourselves in love for one another, and using the gifts God has given us to glorify Him.
In today’s gospel, Jesus tells us, “For this I was born and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth.” Likewise, we are called to use the lives God has given us to testify to the truth. We are called to bear witness to the gospel by the way we live our lives, giving of our time, our talents and our treasure to serve the Lord by serving one another. Then, people will surely see God in us, and we will call others to Him.
