My dear brothers and sisters,
This weekend, our liturgical year culminates with the solemn feast and what a fitting conclusion, we are celebrating Jesus Christ as the King of the Universe. It reminds us and gives us hope that it is still the Lord who is going to triumph in the end. Our Mighty King identifies Himself with the lowly – the least of this world. That is how the divine might is manifested to us, in lowliness and the lowly people.
In our Gospel, Matthew 25: 31-46, the Mighty God is found in the least of our brothers & sisters. Our final destiny, our eternal destiny, our belonging to God’s Kingdom will depend on how we have treated the least. Even if you do not see Jesus in the person, do the good deed – you are doing it for Him. Our Almighty God is with them.
Truly I tell you just as you did it to one of the least of these, you did it to me.
So, this weekend, we need to asked ourselves this question:
What did you do for Jesus today?
