Christmas is coming. You cannot avoid the sights and sounds of the season. And the white flakes of winter have already come to some of our homes!
But the Christian Calendar reminds us of another reality: the close of Ordinary Time links Pentecost with the Reign of Christ. We enter Advent through the remembrance of Christ the King! The baby, whose birth we long for and whose incarnation makes us sons and daughters, reigns now and forever. One God, the beginning and the end, held together here, as we tell the stories on this Christ the King Sunday.
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty. (Rev 1:8)
Before we turn to the waiting and the longing for the unexpected gift of a son, we pause and rejoice. The Lord is King! Lift up your hearts and give him praise.
