THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Today is the Feast of Christ the King and this Gospel certainly gives
us an opportunity to lay aside a lot of cultural baggage we have about
kings, leaders, and kingdoms. The Jewish leaders want Jesus executed and
so they bring him to Pilate who engages in a debate with Jesus on
"kingship". Jesus is accused of claiming to be a "king" and this passage
plays on both the political and religious meaning of that word. Pilate
is concerned with whether or not Jesus poses a threat to Roman rule,
while the Jewish religious leaders are worried about the type of
"Messiah King" Jesus claims to be. Through his ministry Jesus has shown
them that His kingdom 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. Jesus is a
servant King, a beacon of light for today’s world. Who do you know in
our world today who is the more living example of this type of kingship?
When you look at the world’s political leaders, do they shine like a
beacon light striving for peace, justice and care for the earth? On this
Feast of Christ the King we celebrate a type of kingship that is a
display of radical love. What a different world we would have if all
those who hold power and authority lead in such a way. Let us pray today
that all leaders will be open to listening to the Spirit and strive for
a more just world.
