THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

This is the final Sunday of Year C, and as we draw to a close our reading of Luke’s Gospel we hear the account of Jesus’ crucifixion. It is the Feast of Christ the King and this Gospel certainly gives us an opportunity to lay aside a lot of cultural baggage we may have about kings, leaders, and kingdoms. Jesus’ kingdom unlike is unlike the one that Pilate, or many other earthly leaders know. It is a kingdom built on love, service, justice, reconciliation, and peace. Few "kings" can measure up to this: responding to violence with forgiveness, giving those with no hope a reason to hope, putting the crisis of the world before financial gain or power. Who do you know in our world today who is the more living example of this type of kingship, making daily sacrifices in endless service to those around them?

We hear much about the climate crisis in our world today, the loss of bio-diversity, the breakdown of our ecosystems and the lack of political will to embrace the solutions that are available. This is due to greed and the powerful influence of so called leaders. Once again many will gather in Chile next month for the 25th UN Conference on Climate Change. We must pray for them, that they will be courageous and put the future of the environment above financial gain and lead for the best interests of our world and for generations to come.

Today’s Gospel gives a powerful image of Jesus as servant King, shining like a beacon of light for society in today’s world. "The power of truth, of honesty, of forgiveness—with no frills! How different the world would be if it was governed by this kind of power." - Michel de Verteuil

- Jane Mellett
