Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe Last Sunday in Ordinary Time Revelation 1:5–8
A Kingdom of Priests
Christ is our king, and we are his subjects. That places him and us in a unique position with the rulers of the world. Christians strive to be good citizens, wherever we live. A good state will promote religious freedom and allow its citizens to contribute to its well-being. As Christians we have opinions about the value of human life from womb to tomb, the importance of caring for the needy in other nations, taxes that do not place an unfair burden on the poor, and the humane treatment of criminal offenders and prisoners of war. Sometimes the state’s official policy differs from the perspective of the Gospel. At those times we realize that Christ is our king, though someone else may be head of state. The Book of Revelation opens with a vision of the Risen Jesus. “He is coming amid the clouds, and every eye will see him.” Because of Jesus’ majestic appearance, the suffering he endured, and the redemption he has won, Revelation offers this hymn of praise: “To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, who has made us into a kingdom, priests for his God and Father, to him be glory and power forever and ever. Amen.” Christ is our king. We are more than subjects; we are priests. Through our baptism we are consecrated as a holy nation. We raise our voice on behalf of all the peoples of the earth.

During the past couple of weeks, we have invited
each of you to prayerfully consider a gift to the
Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA) and many of you
have pledged your support. We thank you. If you
have not made a gift or a pledge, please make a
difference today by finding a pledge card and
(mailing it to the Office of Stewardship and
Development or placing it in the collection
basket). Pledge cards are available in the pews
and in the Parish Office or by contacting Adriana
Mears. Every gift makes a difference, and we are
aiming for 100% participation.
You are Invited to Community Conversations about Procession
A documentary called Procession was filmed in our diocese and facilitates drama therapy for six
survivors of clergy sexual abuse, some from our diocese. It will be released on Netflix on November
What is your reaction to this?
This might be the first you’ve heard about it, or you may have already attended a pre-screening. You
might be angry, curious, hopeful, infuriated, sad, anxious or all of these. Your emotions might be
directed at the Church or any number of individuals. You might even be mad at yourself for feeling
how you feel.
Journey to Bethany invites you, your friends and family to join with others in conversation about the
film and the thoughts and feelings this brings up in you. These conversations are designed as safe
spaces with a structure that allows for all to participate in the way in which they are most
comfortable. It allows for all feelings and opinions to be shared and for the community to support one
another. In addition, counseling professionals will be available for anyone who might want to speak
with someone one-on-one.
The events are open to the public, so please share this invitation. In accordance with COVID-19
safety best practices, registration is requested so that social distancing may be accommodated. Learn
more and register at www.journeytobethany.org/conversations. We are considering a fully online
(Zoom) session as well; if you prefer this option, please use the form on the website site to let us

THANKFULNESS Tuesday at breakfast, Dennis came to me
as I was washing dishes. He said, “John,
I’m sure you don’t remember me. Ten
months ago I came in for the first time
after becoming homeless. You directed
me to a center that helps homeless veter-
ans. I took your advice and because of
that I was able to get into a home. I’ve
been housed for the last 9 months. If it
wasn’t for that advice and this place, I
would have been homeless and probably
dead by now. I just wanted to come back
and say thank you.
