Lord Jesus Christ, Universal King
remember me when you come into your kingdom.”
“Indeed, I promise you, today you will be
with me in paradise.” This
beautiful exchange between Jesus and the man dying
on the cross beside him is one of the sources
of hope and inspiration for people of all times.
When we call him king, we are not talking about
someone who lords it over us but rather of someone
who brings us into the fullness of life. Even
in the depths of his own suffering he has compassion
for the man beside him. His kingdom can only be
built on that same compassion. As his followers
we are called to forgive one another as he has
forgiven us. At the end of this Liturgical Year
we owe it to ourselves to let the past go in so
far as it holds us back from being people of great
love. And we owe it to one another to build each
other up in love in our homes and in our faith
community. Then the world will believe in Jesus
Fr. Johnny Doherty, C.Ss.R.

to bounce back next season to senior football
where we belong.
