Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe, Solemnity
Ezekiel 34:11-12, 15-17. Psalm 23:1-2, 2-3, 5-6. 1 Corinthians 15:20-26, 28. Matthew 25:31-46.
Six Grows to Nine. We get the start of the Corporal Works of Mercy in Matthew 25. Two more are added over time. Pope Francis adds one more. These are the behaviors by which each will be judged – actions toward others are, in fact, done for and to God. What we think is important. What we may say is also important. But what we do is key, is more important. Here is the list: Corporal Works of Mercy ¨ Feed the hungry ¨ Give drink to the thirsty ¨ Shelter the homeless ¨ Clothe the naked ¨ Visit the sick ¨ Visit the prisoners ¨ Bury the dead ¨ Give alms to the poor ¨ Care of our Common Home.
- Who does not have enough that I will feed?
- Whom will I welcome?
- How will I be responsible for the earth?
