A SNIPPET FROM THIS WEEK'S NEWSLETTER ~ Compassion for the Needy
The parable identifies the Son of Man (a title Jesus uses about himself) with a king who holds court and passes life-and-death judgement. In that respect Jesus is aligning himself with the conventional practice of kings and rulers. But the criteria he uses to make his judgements are entirely unconventional.
What merits eternal life is practical outreach to people suffering distress of one kind or another - an outreach not motivated by the hope of reward but by compassion for the needy. Those who show such neighbourly love are focused on the present reality of life around them, not on other worldly concerns. The feast of Christ the King may take place against a horizon of glory, but it anchors us firmly in the world as it is. As the liturgical year comes to a close we are left with a question: are we as enterprising in our care for others as we are in advancing our own interests? Break Open the Word
