In today’s Gospel, Christ foreshadows the final judgement. The day when takes his rightful place on the king’s throne and divides the righteous and the unrighteous. The measuring stick he uses is how we treated others in our life, the way in which we cared for humanity, a visual sign of the father’s love he embeds in all of us.
The sheep, or the righteous, “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty you gave me something to drink…” will be granted eternal life at the right hand of the father. The goats who did not adhere to these works of mercy will be sent to the right hand of satan.
Take time today to reflect on your past week. Where would you see yourself according to Christ? The holiday season is here and people will go without their loved ones for the first time, maybe even be alone, extend the extra spot at your table to those who need it. By living out this Gospel call, you live out your universal call to holiness and better prepare you to live out the life Christ calls you to live.
Father, as we celebrate this sacred solemnity, let us recognize Jesus as king of our hearts and allow him to use us for your will. We ask all this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
