Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe

Rich king, poor king

At the height of church power in the Middle Ages, popes lived like princes ruling vast earthly domains. That changed in modern times with the rise of secular nations. After Italy united and claimed Rome as its capital in 1870, popes considered themselves “prisoners in the Vatican.” In response to the loss of temporal power, the Feast of Christ the King was instituted to assert Christ’s sovereignty. But Jesus made it clear his Kingdom is not of this world. In our own day, Pope Francis says he longs for a church that is poor. This is the kind of church presided over by Christ the King. Join his realm.

Today’s readings: Ezekiel 34:11-12, 15-17; 1 Corinthians 15:20-26, 28; Matthew 25:31-46 (160). “Whatever you did for one of the least brothers of mine, you did for me.”
