Amen, I Say to You, Whatever You Did For One of the Least Brothers of Mine, You Did for Me

Today we celebrate the Universal Kingship of Christ over creation.
The name of our parish shouts out that Jesus is our Almighty King
and we proclaim with the lives of our parish community that he lives
and reigns in our hearts, our families, and in our parish.
This Sunday’s gospel presents us with the only way we can be true
laborers in God's Kingdom and give glory to Him as our King: Mercy.
Just remember that God is Love and we were created in God's likeness and image, and Love is expressed in concrete acts of mercy. Only the acts of charity build our way to heaven. The Christian life is not supported by words; they will be gone with the wind. The Christian life is built when we recognize the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ in our brothers and sisters who are suffering and in great need. Do great acts of love for
the needy expecting only to hear the echo of today's gospel when Jesus
welcomes you at the final judgment: “Amen, I say to you, whatever you
did for one of the least brothers of mine, you did for me.”
During the last few Sundays I have been reminding you of the advice of Jesus: Be ready, the time is now. Please don’t postpone your conversion; let us abandon any sinful way and come to God's mercy through signs of a real spiritual change; a life full of mercy for our brothers and sisters. I have said through the entire year "Mercy is the key to opening the gates to enter the Kingdom of God." Mercy, Love, and Charity is our calling, our mission, and the only way to proclaim that Jesus is the King of the Universe.
I place our family community in Christ's hands and under the protection of our Blessed Mother, Queen of peace.
All of you are in my prayers and heart.
Fr. Javier
