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.

Thank you to all our sponsors

guests. We are

so honored to be

a small part of

their lives.

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.
