Sunday Readings: Ezekiel 34.11-12,15-17; 1 Corinthians 15.20-26,28; Matthew 25.31-46
“Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you or see you thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we you were a stranger and welcome you or naked and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?” – Matthew 25.37-39
The church year culminates this Sunday and holds up Jesus Christ as the model leader of the human race. In becoming one of us, God’s Son identifies with all of us and holds up the least as the measure of discipleship. Love of God and love of neighbor are inseparable. Sunday’s parable of judgment makes clear and concrete in the works of mercy what love does. This vision calls us to work with others to transform us and our world into a community of justice and healing.
In what sense is everyday a judgment day?
