Christ the King Sunday
Ezekiel 34:11-16, 20-24
THE GOSPEL READING:
Questions for Reflection:
What sort of power is manifest in the reign of Jesus Christ? What does it mean to claim that Christ is "far above all rule and authority and power and dominion" or that God has "put all things under his feet"?
Almighty God, reveal to me the greatness of your power, that I may see your presence among the lowly and the lost and know the authority and sovereignty of your love in Jesus Christ, our Lord, who is also our humble brother. Amen.
Lord Jesus, when did I see you hungry? When did I see you thirsty? When did I welcome you, or clothe you, or take cae of you, or visit you? Have I ignored your claim upon my time, my attention, my resources? Open my eyes; melt my heart; enlighten my understanding. Let me see you in the world, welcome you as my brother, and serve you as my Lord, with the family you acknowledge as your own: the poor, the stranger, the sick, and the prisoner. Amen.
