November 21, 2010: The Solemnity of Christ the King
Christ Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation; for in him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible…He is head of the body, the church. (Colossians 1:15-16, 18)
As we celebrate the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ the King, this year of the Church comes to an end.
Next Sunday, the First Sunday of Advent, we begin a new year.
The Church year always concludes by celebrating Jesus. The fuller reading from Saint Paul (Colossians 1:12-20) points to Jesus as the center of human history and all of creation. There would be no Church without Jesus. This is good day to think about Jesus and his place in each of our lives. As a baptized Christian, how important is Jesus in your life? Is he at the center of your life?
If Jesus is the center of your life, what does that mean?
Does Jesus make any difference to who you are or how you act?
Sometime today ask Jesus in prayer to help you be his faithful follower, that is, his faithful disciple.
