The Kingdom is the image Jesus used to speak about our true place, our true place both here on earth during our historical existence, and our true place after death. Above all it is one place, whether on earth or in heaven! It is a place that mirrors the goodness, truth and beauty of God. It is a place where all are at one with one another and with the Lord, and so it is peace. Spreading the good news of this Kingdom is the mission Jesus gives his followers, including us. Living by the virtues of the Kingdom is the kind of moral life Jesus taught his followers, including us. Today is the Feast (solemnity) of Christ the King. It is the Sunday that ends our church year, and so next week will be Advent. This Sunday and during this week, let us use as our mantra the words from the Our Father: Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
