“Whatever you did for one of the least brothers of mine,
you did for me.”
Matthew 25:31-46
Focus on the Gospel
November 126, The Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ the King
    How can we identify a real king or a queen?  Is it the fine clothes and jewel-encrusted crowns
they wear or their regal demeanor and stately appearance?  Do they sit on thrones raised above all
the other people and give orders that make others fearfully rush to fulfill their every command?  
No!!!!  Hollywood may portray them as such, and that may be how some kings and queens actually
lived.  But a real king or queen is one who cares equally about everyone for whom they are
responsible.  David was a real king.  Despite his well-documented faults and sins, he sought to assure
that all of the Kingdom of Judah shared equally in the resources and protection of the kingdom.  He
understood that whatever he did for the least in God’s kingdom, he did for God.  That is why the
Northern Kingdom of Israel prevailed upon David to be their king.  Jesus is a Davidic king, so today
we honor him as Christ the King.  Jesus challenges us to be Davidic kings and queens who
understand that whatever we do for the least in God’s kingdom, we do for God.
