CHRIST THE KING

November 21/22, 2009

FOOD FOR THE WEEK

 

Reading I                             Daniel 7.13-14

Responsorial Psalm:             The Lord is king; he is robed in majesty.

Reading II                            Revelation 1.5-8

Gospel:                                John 18.33b-37

 

·         Lord, that is a strange question you asked Pilate: “Do you ask this on your own?” It pushes me back to my own piety; Is it springing from the needs of my own heart, or is it second-hand, asking questions and taking answers out of books and sermons?

·         Let me belong to the truth, listen to your voice, and answer you not with borrowed thoughts or emotions, but with the seeking, however ill-formed, in my own heart.
