Let’s take a look at some of the main themes from the readings for the Feast of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the King of the Universe.

1st Reading – Daniel 7:13-14

  • The Son of Man comes before the Ancient One to receive dominion, glory and kingship.
  • His kingship shall not be destroyed, and all peoples, nations and languages serve him.

Psalm – 93:1-2,5

  • “The Lord is king; he is robed in majesty.”
  • The Lord’s splendor and throne is everlasting; his decrees are worthy of trust.

2nd Reading – Revelation 1:5-8

  • Christ, the faithful witness and firstborn of the dead, loves us and has freed us by his blood.
  • The Lord, who is the Alpha and the Omega, comes with God’s might amid the clouds.

Gospel – John 18:33b-37

  • Pilate questions Jesus to see if he is the King of the Jews.
  • Jesus claims his kingship does not belong to this world, but yes! He is a king!
