Solemnity of Christ the King, Cycle C

Good News Inspiration for Daily Life

Christ the King Bulletin Insert for November 20, 2022.

Description: Jesus took a crown of thorns instead of a crown of gold, because the glory of his kingship is not represented by earthly treasures but by riches that are given to others, the personal sacrifices that are motivated by love. The scriptures for the Solemnity of Christ the King reveal that if we offer to Jesus our sufferings because we realize that they have value, we are united to Jesus.

In Luke 23:35-43, one of the criminals hanging next to Jesus on the cross represents us. Jesus is our king and we want to spend eternity with him in his kingdom. As long as we have this attitude, there is no reason to doubt that when we die we will join Jesus in Paradise. We belong to God’s kingdom when we lovingly serve others with Christ, when we understand the glory of giving generously to others, of making personal sacrifices, and of loving those who don’t deserve our love.
