Readings for Sunday, November 21 — The Solemnity of Our Lord, Jesus Christ, King of the Universe
Daniel 7:13-14; Psalm 93: 1-2, 5; Revelation 1:5-8; John 18:33b-37
Suggested Reflection Questions:
- What do you think of when you think of a king? How do you think Jesus is like a king? How do you think Jesus is NOT like a king?
- In the psalm, we hear of the majesty of the Lord. First, what does majestic mean in this context? What do you think of when you imagine the Lord as majestic? What are some experiences and images from our everyday lives, like being in nature, that help us to understand the Lord’s majesty?
- It might be difficult for our culture to relate to images of royalty. How can you make sense of the image of Christ the King for your own faith? What makes the image of Christ the King relevant for us today?
- Looking forward, how do these readings help us to prepare for the season of Advent, which is starting next week?
