Thought: ‘In the evening of our lives we shall be examined on love’. (St. John of the Cross)’

This week we reflect on the theme of kingship (Sunday was the feast of Christ the King). Yet, in this case a kingship that is not concerned with power and influence, things we usually associate with kingship, but rather of service. It is a kingship displayed by Jesus in terms of selflessness and concern for the well-being of others.


you sent your Son to be our Lord and King.

Help us to be loyal followers in this His Kingdom.

To recognise the values that the Kingdom is founded upon;

the values that we find revealed to us in the life and words of Jesus.

We ask this through Christ our Lord and King.
