The Feast of Christ the King (B)
Readings: Daniel 7:13-14; Revelation 1:5-8; John 18:33b-37
Selected Passage: “So Pilate said to him, ‘then you are a king?’ Jesus answered, ‘You say I am a king. For this I was born and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice’." (John 18: 37)
Meditation: Jesus Christ is our Truth. The true followers of Jesus Christ do not live in lies and falsehood. They belong to the truth and they listen to His voice. Cast off, then, all falsehood in our lives and in our work!
Moreover, Jesus’ kingdom is unlike the one that Pilate symbolizes and what the ‘establishment’ proclaims… a kingdom that is one of arbitrariness, privileges, and power. Jesus’ kingdom is built on love, justice and peace.
