Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe

This weekend we celebrate the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe. A solemnity is a feast day of the highest rank celebrating a mystery of faith. We are called by faith to acknowledge that the son of God is the King of the Universe, and all power has been handed over to Him by our heavenly Father. Simply put, Jesus is the salvation of creation and its final judge.

Through the prophet Ezekiel, God tells us that He is our Good Shepherd. We are the flock He shepherds, and He will always be there to take care of us. No matter where life has led us, scattered across the face of this planet, He will find us and draw us back to Him. Draw to Him, we will find the peace and joy that surpasses any and everything this world could offer. He will provide the strength and perseverance we need to continue our daily struggles until He
comes again.

This promise of God has been fulfilled with the first coming of our Savior. Jesus has shown us the way to be a part of God’s flock. He has taken on the role of our shepherd in human form. Through His teachings and actions, He has shown us what it means to be loved by God and how valuable we are to Him.
