Are you a very important person? Increasingly I think each of us answers that question with a resounding “yes”! But if we really wish to be a very important person, then we must make Christ our King by recognizing his image in every human being.
If you have been listening to the readings for the past couple of weeks, you might have noticed that they are kind of heavy. They describe battles, wars, standing up for faith, and hardships. This is largely because it is the case that as we finish out this liturgical year (Advent starts Sunday) we are invited to focus on ultimate things. The meaning of life, our ultimate destiny, our faith. Today’s readings remind us, in many ways, that God is really in charge. And that Jesus Christ is indeed, Lord.
