November 26: Human Kindness, a Sunday Scriptures blog

christ-the-kingNext Sunday ends our liturgical year with the Feast of Christ the King. Matthew paints a scene about a king on his throne, judging who is righteous and who is wicked, and banishing the wicked to “everlasting punishment.” An interesting point in this reading is that the righteous seem not to know they have been good! Lord, when did we see you hungry and give you nourishment? they ask. It is not necessary that people be Christians, Catholics or a member of any religion at all. What is necessary is human kindness — love — expressed not only in words but in acts. Perhaps you know people like that, in your family or work world, people who would “give you the shirt off their back” and do, but are not religious. Among all the other themes of this today, give thanks for them, as we prepare to welcome Advent next week.
