“…as you did it to one of the least
of my brethren, you did it to me”
Matthew 25:40
Most of us are generous when it’s
convenient for us. We are generous
when we have the time or the money. But, generosity is the opposite of
that. It means giving of ones time,
money, compassion, forgiveness,
mercy when it’s not convenient;
when it’s not on our schedule, but on
the other person’s schedule.
CCHD Collection -This week the
Archdiocese will be joining dioceses
across the country in the annual
collection for the Catholic Campaign
for Human Development (CCHD).
CCHD is the anti-poverty program of
the bishops of the United States.
CCHD’s grants empower communities to build pathways out of poverty
and isolation. More information about
the Catholic Campaign for Human
Development is available at
www.povertyusa.org. There is an
envelope in your packet.
Enjoy the Liturgy
Jesus said to His disciples: “When the Son of Man comes in
His glory, and all the angels with Him, He will sit upon His glorious
throne, and all the nations will be assembled before Him...Then the
king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my
Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the
foundation.’” (Matthew 25:31-34)
Today we celebrate the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ,
King of the Universe – the last Sunday of the Church’s Liturgical Year.
The Lord Jesus is our Shepherd; at the end, at His coming, He will
hand over the kingdom to His Father.
We have likened the Liturgical Year to a great symphony, even
giving it a title: A Symphony of Love in C Major (C being Christ). Most
of us have a favorite piece of music that we enjoy hearing over and
over. It does not become monotonous in its repetition; rather we hear
something a little different each time. What we hear depends on
multiple factors: our mood as we listen, our environment, where we are
at that particular time in life. Every day, as human beings, we change;
therefore every time we listen to our great symphony, we will probably
hear something just a bit different.
Before major productions, a conductor will oftentimes present
Program Notes on the upcoming performance. These notes may give
background on the composer(s); point out certain passages to
anticipate; perhaps identify a theme that threads throughout; a reprise
of a passage with a variation on its presentation. Ideas to help us appreciate the music we are about to experience.
We can find Program Notes for our Symphony of Love in C
Major right within the symphony itself. We see an example of this
today in the finale of our symphony. In the First Reading from the
prophet Ezekiel, we hear that the Lord God is a shepherd who tends
and cares for His flock, who will judge the sheep. This theme is
echoed in the Gospel, where we learn that Jesus, the Good Shepherd,
will separate the sheep from the goats. We are instructed to care for
one another, to feed the hungry, etc. Then in the Liturgy of the
Eucharist Jesus feeds us, who hunger, the Bread of Life.
May you enjoy the beautiful liturgy that Jesus Christ, King of
the Universe, has prepared for us.

The word Eucharist means “thanksgiving.” What is
the deeper meaning between receiving the Eucharist and
offering thanksgiving to God? When we recall the Last
Supper in the Gospel of Luke, we read that Jesus said, “I
earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I
suffer…” Jesus then took the bread, and when He had given thanks He broke
it and gave it to them, saying, “This is My Body which is given for you.” And
likewise the cup after supper, saying, “This cup which is poured out for you is
the new covenant in my blood” (Luke 22:15, 19-20).
Jesus “earnestly desires” to give Himself to us in the Eucharist, but
not just in the Eucharist. Jesus gave thanks to His Father for the True Bread,
His Body, that would be broken for us. He thanked the Father that He was
able to offer Himself for our redemption! The Son of God, who has received
all He is, gives thanks, by pouring Himself out in a return of Love. This great
mystery leaves me a bit speechless.
This makes me think of parents who spend themselves and pour
themselves out for their children. Often the work of a parent is difficult and full
of trials, but all the while your heart is grateful for the gift of children and for
your ability to love them. Thinking of parents gives us just a small idea of the
immensity of Jesus’ love for us. Many blessings this Thanksgiving on our Holy
Spirit families!
