In the first reading, from the second book of Samuel, we meet Jesus ancestor David, the greatest king of Israel. This passage describes a glorious monarch who is acclaimed by all the tribes of Israel. He is called both a shepherd and a commander. The second reading, from Paul s Letter to the Colossians, also contains glorious language, describing Christ as the firstborn of all creation. Only at the end of this passage do we hear a hint of the paradox we will meet in today s Gospel: Christ the King makes peace by the blood of his cross. In Luke s Gospel, we confront the stark reality of Christ s kingship. Here is our king, hanging on a cross, jeered, taunted, berated by a common criminal. This king looks defeated and powerless. Yet he demonstrates how absolute his power is. His death is truly for the salvation of all, one person at a time, starting with the Good Thief, and continuing through the ages to us today. Copyright J.S.P.Co. Humanitarian Relief Pope Francis: Heartfelt solidarity with those affected by Philippines typhoon.

CLASS FOR 2ND YEAR OF SACRAMENT PREPARATION Next meeting for parents and children in their 2nd year of Sacrament Preparation in the GIFT Program is scheduled for Thursday, December 6:30pm Middle School Youth Group All 6th, 7th & 8th graders always welcome! TEEN GOSPEL REFLECTION In a world filled with endless temptations, it has become significantly harder to find the word of our Lord and act upon it in a responsible fashion. Regardless of our natural sins, God blessed us with the power of free will; however, this great power comes with an even greater responsibility. God refuses to intervene with our freedoms for multiple reasons but primarily to test our faith in Him and His message. Jesus could have easily saved himself from His extremely painful death, yet He accepts His responsibility and therefore shows ineffable love and fortitude. Making the right decision, which is usually tougher, in the midst of an easier choice is the perfect way to show our faith in God. If God simply condemned those who decided to reject His Word, and refused humanity free will, the sacrifice that defines love and faith would be eliminated completely stripping away our spirituality. Jesus undeservingly faced the most excruciating death, but the sacrifice He made that day by accepting the responsibility that comes with free will defines love. Following the word of the Lord is easy when it is the only choice you have, but to accept His calling while other choices and temptations are present is a much more challenging task that better illustrates our faith and commitment to God. Like the criminal that asked for forgiveness, I too must repent for my irresponsible choices and look to Jesus as the ultimate example for making the right decisions, even when circumstances become extremely harsh.

HISPANIC MINISTRIES / MINISTERIOS HISPANOS NUEVA DEFINICIÓN DEL REINO Este último domingo del año litúrgico de la Iglesia está dedicado a Cristo Rey. En la primera lectura tomada del segundo libro de Samuel, encontramos al antepasado de Jesús, David, el rey más grande de Israel. Este pasaje describe a un glorioso monarca aclamado por todas las tribus de Israel. Es llamado pastor y jefe. La segunda lectura, de la carta de Pablo a los Colosenses, también contiene un glorioso lenguaje para describir a Cristo como el primogénito de toda la creación. Solamente al final de este pasaje oímos un indicio de la paradoja que encontraremos en el Evangelio de hoy. Cristo Rey establece la paz por su sangre derramada en la cruz.en el Evangelio de Lucas, confrontamos la escueta realidad del reinado de Cristo. Aquí está nuestro rey, colgado de una cruz, mofado, escarnecido, insultado por un común criminal. Este rey parece vencido e impotente. Sin embargo demuestra que absoluto es su poder. Su muerte es realmente por la salvación de todos, una persona a la vez, comenzando con el buen ladrón, y continuando por todas las edades hasta nosotros hoy. Copyright, J. S. Paluch Co.
