About Today Readings

Our Lord Jesus Christ, Universal King.

Ezekiel 34:11-12, 15-17. Psalm 22(23):1-3, 5-6. 1 Corinthians 15:20-26, 28. Matthew 25:31-46.

The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want — Psalm 22(23):1-3, 5-6.

‘Whatever you do to the least of my brothers and sisters you do to me.’

Today we are reminded that Jesus is still among us in those in need of his compassion and love. His feet are fastened, his hands are tied, his tongue silenced. Now it is our turn to be his feet, hands, voice. Every time we do good to another it makes a difference in the world because it makes a difference to that one person.

Where do we find Jesus? Wherever there is need for a word of encouragement, a listening ear, a bowl of soup, a visit to someone unable to leave their house. It is not only physical needs, but the needs of the soul and the spirit.

‘The greatest evil in the world is the lack of love, the terrible indifference towards one’s neighbour’ (St Teresa of Calcutta). Lord, may we as your disciples produce the fruits of love.
