Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church: Catholic Sunday Homilies

Christ the King is a Political Feast (Jn 18:33-37) (OT 34)

November 21, 2021

We don't like to talk politics, but today's feast is political. Jesus is Lord, was the refrain of the early church, as opposed to the political statement Caesar is Lord.  To say Jesus is King is intentionally making our Faith political. In politics we seek first to promote country, political party, etc. But as a member of the Kingdom of God, that should be our highest priority to Promote God's Kingdom, a kingdom encompassing all nations, so all our politics should follow the teachings of Christ our King. Often political leaders and states seek to define a truth to serve the nation, rather than the nation serving the truth. Often we seek to crucify the truth instead of letting the truth conform us. If we all were better disciples of the truth in our spiritual and moral lives, so too would our politics serve God's Kingdom.
