Weekend Relfections for 11/23/18

The Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the universe...that's quite a mouthful.  But Mother Church wants us to ponder that exact reality as we conclude now our liturgical year, before Advent begins. 

In shorthand, let's take the simple words "Christ the King."  Do those words roll off our tongue?  Is that true to reality in our lives?  More personally, is He the central point of my life, and the guiding source of my thoughts?  Are all my actions meant to serve Him?  If so, He is definitely my king.  If not, I am invited to recommit.

We pray then for the grace of the Holy Spirit to recognize Christ for who he truly is, and the grace also to choose to serve him in all things as his vassal, as did St. Ignatius.

May his kingdom come, starting with my life.  

-Fr. Anthony Wieck, SJ
