The Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe (Year C) • God has given us Jesus to be our King. The king is crowned with thorns, barely dressed, nailed to a cross and powerless. We have to look beyond the appearances and have faith in our King. He has a vision for us: missionary disciples striving to lead all people to His Kingdom.
When you got married you had a vision of life with your lover. Then you started living for the kids. Now your family mission has become driving kids to stuff all the time. You’ve lost sight of the vision. Allow God to show you His Vision and a Mission for your life. We can say No to all the junk when we say Yes to following our King.
