This Feast of Christ the King IS POLITICAL! (Jn 18:33-37) (34 OT)

November 25, 2018

Today's Feast, Christ the King of the Universe, is meant to make a political statement. It was established in 1925 by Pope Leo, to speak to rising Nationalism, which gave rise to WWI and was threatening to lead again to war. It was established to remind all Christians, that even though we live in nations, our highest allegiance is not to any one nation, but to Christ the King of All Nations, and God of All People. We must weigh our nation's politics in the light of the Gospel, the highest standard. This message is still needed to be proclaimed today!

We are in Difficult Times. God can use suffering to bring about good. (MK 13:24-32) (33 OT)

Jesus is the Lord, Savior, and the Messiah prophecized in the Old Testament. Today's Gospel passage calls to mind the prophecy of the Kingdom of God, and the Messiah who is a divine figure coming from heaven on the clouds "like a Son of Man." Today Jesus claims to be the fulfillment of that prophecy, and also predicts the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple. Today's prophecy also foreshadows the end of the world. How does this help us today? It reveals that God has a plan, and no matter how difficult things may seem to be, God will triumph in the end, and we too, through faith with Him.  Suffering is not caused by God, but it is used by God to strengthen our faith.  Today's times can strengthen our faith, and that Faith can lighten our burdens and free us to love others and hence bring about a rebirth after difficult times.

What does it LOOK LIKE to Love God with Heart, Mind, Strength and Soul? (MK 12:28-34) (31 OT)

What does it LOOK LIKE to Love God with Heart, Mind, Strength and Soul? (MK 12:28-34) (31 OT)

Jesus says we should Love God "With all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength." What does this really look like? This homily contains some practical suggestions, or check, to see if you love God with your, mind, heart, strength, and soul. To love God is a miracle. It is a response to His love for us. But we can do things to invite this miracle into our lives.
