GETTING TO KNOW THE SAINTS
Apostle (first century)
Of all the original 12 apostles St. Jude is perhaps the most commonly invoked in prayer. This is an ironic compensation for his obscurity in the Gospels. Aside from the citation of his name in listings of the Twelve, St. Jude is quoted only once. This occurs in the Gospel of John (14:22) when he interrupts a disquisition by Jesus at the Last Supper to ask, ?Lord, how is it that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?? This question evokes the answer of Jesus: ?If a man loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. He who does not love me does not keep my words; and the word which you hear is not mine but the Father?s who sent me.?
A STRANGE KING
Why do we still celebrate the feast of Christ the King when most of us today know kings only from fairytales and from history? And most kings in history were not good rulers. Even the Bible does not favor kings. For the kings would demand forced labor and taxes. And when the New Testament speaks about Jesus as king, it is when he is mocked and tortured.
Lord, I have some difficulties to honor you as king. For me you are more a brother, a friend. But it is good to be reminded that I should not pull you down to my level and not forget that you, after all, are in charge of history, in charge of my life and destiny. Guide and protect me in these difficult times and let me not forget that I have also the task to build up your Kingdom here on earth.
The FEAST is one of the happiest places on earth.
