Fr. Bernard's Weekly Reflection

November 26, 2017- The Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe

This Sunday is the last Sunday of the liturgical year. We culminate it with the Feast of Christ the King. In other words all Sundays foresee the Messiahship of Christ, which is the core of our faith.

In my town back in Goa, very close to the church building, there is a beautiful square with marble pillars and in the center of the square a statue of Christ the King is installed on a five foot stand. The statue is probably six feet tall. When I was a child the Solemn Mass of Christ the King would begin at this square with a procession to the church.

I can recall discussing with my other friends as innocent kids about the two things which the statue held in its hands. In one hand He held a rod and in the other a globe with a cross over it. One of my friends said: “If the rod falls from His hand there will be fire everywhere and if the ball falls there will be floods.”  Perhaps these were irrelevant interpretations. But it did make some sense as in meaning “He is powerful, so better behave.”

Now as a priest the statue comes alive to me. It does speak about His power and we call it the Kingship of Christ. He has established His kingdom not with war and inflicting fear, but with love and mercy. He wants all of us to partake of His kingdom. His Kingship will reign forever. Praise to the Lord and King Almighty!

*By the time this bulletin reaches you, you will have had a great Thanksgiving feast. Be assured of my humble prayer of gratitude to the Almighty for bringing me admidst you on this day of Thanksgiving. I feel privileged to serve you. Please don’t spoil me with too much love… May God bless you.
