CHRIST THE KING Solemnity (Thirty-fourth and Last Sunday in Ordinary Time)
Also Read: Mass Readings for 21 November 2021
First Reading: Daniel 7: 13-14
(13) To him is given dominion and glory and kingship, …and his kingship is one that shall never be destroyed.
How wonderful it is to meditate on the scriptures today that bring us a clear picture of Christ’s Kingship. We, his children are blessed to hear his voice. Let not the evil times around us bog us down! Let us await his coming with joy and faith.
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 93: 1, 1-2, 5
The Lord is King, he is robed in majesty.
Second Reading: Revelation 1: 5-8
(8) “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, who is and who was and who is to come, the almighty.
We must rejoice, The Lord God, The Almighty, and Our Father are to come! Amen!
Gospel: John 18: 33b-37
(37) Pilate asked him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this, I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.”
We listen to his voice only when we belong to the truth. Christ came that we might listen to his voice and be saved. We hear Jesus Christ’s words echo two thousand years later even as he proclaimed that day to Pilate. May we hear the truth and believe!
