REFLECTION

On this feast of Christ the king, the gospel teaches us about Jesus’ coming at the end of time. The judgement which Christ will then make will be based on how we have treated the powerless of this world. For our glorious king, the poor man of Nazareth, has identified himself with them. If we do not recognize Jesus in the poor, we may not see him at all. Can we accept such a king? On our answer rests our judgement. St. Paul calls Christ king because in him we will be given life for ever. On the Day of the Lord, Jesus will hand over to his Father all those for whom he died and who have lived under his rule. Ezekiel tells us that the true king rules as shepherd. The prophet presents God as a shepherd – king who takes personal care of his flock. Should any become lost or confused, he rescues them. God claims the right to judge the flock over which he exercises such watchful concern. The psalm expresses grateful praise of our good shepherd. We have known God’s affection; we can trust him to bring us home.
