Reflection for the Solemnity of Christ the King

On this last Sunday of the year the image of Christ our King begs us to give our allegiance to what really matters, to the kingdom where here is no place for ambition, greed, status and power. Christ the King challenges us to be revolutionaries by making the world a more just and peaceful place to live in. We are invited to seek, unlike our world would have us believe, downward mobility.

There are three takeaways for us this weekend: Christ the King calls us to transformation, to alternative living and – at the end of the liturgical year – to take stock of which kingdom we are really living in.
