Weekly Reflection

"I tell you solemnly, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me."

Mathew 25:31-46

The Solemnity of Christ the King is the last Sunday in Ordinary Time. Next week starts the new liturgical year - the First Sunday of Advent. In this last Sunday in Ordinary Time, Jesus calls to mind the Final Judgment, the separation of the good from the evil. He addresses those to his right and entered them into the Kingdom of Heaven while he banishes those to his left into the pits of hell.

When we engage in doing good, we show our love for God. God who is all good and loving, gives us many chances to repent and to do good. Some of us say, "I will repent and do good before I die." The problem is: we do not know when we will die. So do not wait to repent and to do good. Start it now and ask God for this grace of perseverance in doing good.

"Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary. So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith."

- Galatians 6:9-10
