Prepare a way for the Lord
Our short season of Advent is like a journey through a structured time, helping us to prepare for the coming or "advent" of Jesus Christ.

A sheep or a goat?
This Sunday, we celebrate the solemnity of Christ the King. It's the last Sunday of the liturgical year. As in the weeks leading up to this great feast, the readings this week have a message for us of preparation, vigilance and where we ultimately are headed. The choice before us, simply put, is between heaven and hell, between eternal life and eternal punishment.

Ready for the master
The urgency of the Gospel call to conversion comes through once again in this week's readings. St. Paul says (1 Th 5:1-6) that "the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night."

Be ready when your turn comes
We are approaching the end of the liturgical year, and the readings begin to reflect that this week.

Words for priests and us
At first hearing, Sunday's readings seem directed at priests, not at the laity. Jesus levies an extensive criticism at the scribes and Pharisees because of their hypocrisy: They don't practice what they preach (Mt 23:1-12). In addition, Malachi says in the first reading (Mal 1:14b-2:2b, 2:8-10): "And now, o priests, this command is for you."
