Homily for Christ the King

Fr. Joel Homilies

Treat the King as He treats Us

Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ the King. The glory of the King of Kings is revealed. Everyone is judged on whether they treated Him well or badly. When, we wonder, did we have a chance to give our King food and drink? In the least of our brothers and sisters. It’s not that Jesus will be king in the future; He is the Lord now. But he is not a Lord who rules by violence and force. He invites us to act the same way. Our King is compassionate and merciful. Do we treat others the way our King treats us?
