Live the Liturgy

As the King of the universe, Christ does not desire earthly power or kingly admiration. What Christ our King desires is that we advocate and work for those most in need among us: the poor, the unfortunate, the forsaken, the abused, and the exploited. Providing for the basic needs of others is a human right that we must strive to fulfill. If someone is hungry, feed her. If someone is without shelter, provide one. If a person requires clothes, clothe him. When others are in harm’s way, find them safety. When it comes to basic human needs, it does not matter why a person is in need; all that matters is that someone is. That’s where you and I, who are citizens of God’s eternal kingdom, come in. What we do for the least of these, we do for God.
