FIRST READING: 2 Sam. 5: 1-3 "They anointed David king of Israel."
Ps. 122 "I rejoiced when I heard them say: 'Let us go to God's House."
Col. 1: 12-20 He has taken us into the kingdom of his beloved Son.
Mk. 11: 10 "Blessed is he who inherits the kingdom of David our father; blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord."
GOSPEL: Lk. 23: 35-43
Lord, remember me when you come into your kingdom.
Jesus is jeered at on the cross. One of the others being crucified asks Jesus to remember him when he comes into his kingdom.
FOCUS: "Above him there was an inscription, 'This is the king of the Jews'." In Jesus we have a king with a cross for a throne, a king who died that we may live.
REFLECTION: "Ye shall therefore have the blessing which I shall give at the last judgement, inasmuch as ye did not repulse Me when I came into Mine own place, as did my persecutors, but of your compassion did receive Me into the lodging of your hearts, as a desolate pilgrim; when I hung naked upon the Cross, hungry, thirsty, and sick, and pierced by nails, ye did suffer with Me in my death and desired in all things to be My companions." Bl. Angela of Foligno
"The essential mood of the penitent is this: 'In the way Thou knowest, O Lord, save me. For my part I will labour without hypocrisy, without deviation and misinterpretation, but according to a pure conscience, doing everything that I understand and that lies in my power.' Whoever can truly feel this in his heart, is accepted by the Lord, who then comes to rule as king within him.
God is his teacher, God it is who prays in him, God it is who wills and acts in him, God it is who bears fruit in him. God is his ruler. Such a state is the seed and the heart of the heavenly tree of life within him." Theophane the Recluse
APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: If the sprinkling rite is used, an introductory statement could focus on our sharing in Christ's passion and death through the waters of baptism.
General Intercessions
Introduction: Let us pray with humility, simplicity and confidence to God who raises our prayers like he raised his Son.
· For the holy Church of God: that her members always see the resurrection in the many crucifixtions of the world;
· For all peoples of the world: that the Lord unite them in peace and harmony,
· For all our sisters and brothers in need: that the Lord raise them,
· That our community may have the faith and strength to bear witness to Christ's presence.
By sharing in his death we share in his kingship as well. Use a fraction rite "Lamb of God", drawing various titles for Jesus from today's readings, such as "Jesus, king of kings; Jesus, whose throne is a cross,' etc. Introduce the breaking of the bread by stating that the Eucharist is the communal meal in which we share the kingship of Jesus.
The Lord's Prayer: See fourth sample invitation
Prayers over the people: Twentieth
Solemn Blessing in Ordinary time: Third
Faith Formation
If the metaphor of kingship lacks meaning to you, try substituting 'the Divine' or 'the Holiest' for King, and 'divinity' for kingdom:
Jesus who died in time is king (the Holiest) of eternity. Metaphors are used to increase understanding. Once the understanding has been achieved the metaphor is no longer needed. Metaphors are chosen for their utility, and may be discarded or replaced when their utility is over.
There is no clear distinction in liturgy and scripture texts between the end and the beginning of the Church year. Today's responsorial psalm is the same as next week's. The theme of the Second Coming continues as we prepare for Advent.
· Why do we emphasize the end times at this time of year?
The Advent-Christmas season is full of liturgical references that are paradoxical. Almighty God-born a powerless infant. The infinite one becomes finite so that our mortal souls may receive immortal value.
Discuss the idea that in the Eucharist we share in the kingdom of Jesus through a special agreement between us and God. The Eucharist is a meeting point between God and us.
