"Jesus is the image of the unseen God"

This Sunday brings the Church’s liturgical year to its conclusion. Today we celebrate our King whose wealth lies in his love for all, and whose authority is exercised through the service of those who are often considered the least in society.

Through his life and death, Jesus reveals the wondrous and challenging nature of his kingship. Luke’s Gospel, in particular, emphasises that God’s universal love and forgiveness are revealed in the person of Jesus Christ. Even in his dying moments, Jesus was more concerned with saving others than saving himself.  (Gospel)

The First Reading tells of the people of Israel anointing David as their king. The Lord asks him to be both shepherd and leader of his people.

The Psalm is a pilgrim song, sung on arrival to Jerusalem; the city to which David moved after his anointing as King at Hebron.

St. Paul strongly asserts the primacy of Jesus Christ who is both the first-born of all creation and the first-born from the dead. Christ is the image of the invisible God, whose authority and power far exceeds that of any human king. There is no other force at work on earth that compares with him. (Second Reading)

This week, we might join with Pope Francis in praying to share the Church’s Universal Mission, that we and all Christians might strengthen and grow God’s mission through the Church by our own prayer and action.
