Solemnity of Christ the King “Year A”

 

ChristkingTheme: The end of his life is a beginning of our

 

This Sunday as we come to the end of this liturgical year, we ought to look to the future; the ultimate future when Jesus will return in glory for the final judgment. During this feast as we celebrate God’s Kingdom we are called to renew within our lives God’s Rule. How different Christ’s rule is from the ruthless governance originating from us human persons? Who is Jesus Christ for you? We can borrow a leaf from St. Polycarp, the bishop of Smyrna. During his trial Polycarp was brought before the Roman authorities and told to curse Christ and he would be released.  He replied; for eighty-six years have I served him, and he has done me no wrong, how then can I blaspheme my king Jesus Christ who saved me?  The Roman officer replied, “Unless you change your mind, I will have you burnt.”  But Polycarp said, “You threaten a fire that burns for an hour and after a while is quenched; for you are ignorant of the judgment to come and of everlasting punishment reserved for the ungodly.  Do what you wish.

How to deal with guilt

Guilt is that rottenness inside that slowly eats away at your core. It is that feeling that you know you did something wrong and have not confessed it. Maybe you hurt someone, maybe you lied or cheated. Maybe you stole something or did something you feel is unforgivable. Guilt can do more than simply rot your insides; it can cause minor and major health issues, restructure your life or cause someone else immense pain. Guilt is usually not a sin against ourselves but to ourselves and others.

The Solemnity of All Saints 2014

Theme: Our Final destiny is where we long to see God’s face.

The feast of All Saints, on   1st of November, provides an annual reminder that there are many more saints in heaven than the relatively few who have been officially recognized by the Church. For every St. Francis of Assisi or Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta there are thousands of unknown and long forgotten mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, grandmothers and grandfathers, aunts and uncles, cousins, friends, neighbors, co-workers, nurses, teachers, manual laborers, and other individuals in various kinds of occupations who lived holy lives that were consistent with the values of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

This is the feast of countless men and women who remained faithful to God. The Communion of Saints is the union that exists between all the members of the Church on earth, in heaven, and in purgatory. Those members on earth comprise the Church Militant, those in heaven the Church Triumphant, those in purgatory the Church Suffering.

Theme: My house shall be called the house of prayer

Places are very important to us as people. Lovers remember where and when they first met. The memory of where we grew up stays with us even to old age. We visit grave yards to honour and remember our beloved departed relatives and friends. Public buildings matter too. Many people while on holidays visit historic sights and buildings. Our buildings remind us who and where we are. Today’s feast is about a place, a building: the Lateran Basilica in Rome.

The Lateran Basilica in Rome is the Cathedral Church of the Bishop of Rome, our Pope. Obviously, there is a history behind this Church and this feast. The Palace of the Lateran family became property of the Catholic community in 313 as a gift from the emperor Constantine. He desired it to become the Cathedral Church for the Pope which it now is.

Feast of Commemorating of all Souls of the Faithful Departed

All Souls Day makes us mindful not only of the death of our dear ones but also of our own death. The saints experienced it, the disciples experienced it, and Jesus Himself willed to undergo it. But at times like this the Church is there to encourage us and to remind us that while the life of the body may die, the life of the spirit and the good works accomplished during life remain.

These good works accompany the soul in its journey from this life and they are precious in the eyes of the Lord. These good works are what bind us to our lost loved ones till today. Stopping to consider it in this place, at this time, we might realize just how much of the lives of our saints have stayed with us even though they have physically gone: their influence, their warmth, their characteristics which we see in other family members and friends. The way we live now, which is still influenced by the way they encouraged us to live.
