Our Lord Jesus Christ King of the Universe: November 23, 2014
A reading from the holy Gospel according to Matthew 25: 31 – 46
Jesus said to his disciples: “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit upon his glorious throne, and all the nations will be assembled before him. And he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will place the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.’ Then the righteous will answer him and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?’ And the king will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of the least brothers of mine, you did for me.’ Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me no food...’ Then they will answer and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison, and not minister to your needs?’ He will answer them, ‘Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me.’ And these will go off to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
THANKSGIVING DAY MEDITATION
Great Giver of Gifts,
You have wrapped Your kindness in food and drink. You have wrapped Your presence in people and relationships. You have wrapped Your joy in laughter and fellowship. You have wrapped Yourself in flesh and blood, in thorn and shroud, in tomb and victory. Each of these gifts You have tied up neatly in ribbons of love and offered freely to us. In the midst of this bounty we humbly offer back our gifts of thankfulness, appreciation, and praise, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
“I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave Me drink.”
— Matthew 25:35

A layman finds himself in serious trouble. His business gone bust and he decides to ask God for help. He begins to pray, “God, please help me. I’ve lost my business and if I don’t get some money, I’m going to lose my house too. Please let me win the Lotto.”
Lotto night comes, and somebody else wins it. The man prays harder. “God, please let me win the Lotto! I’ve lost my business, my house, and now I’m going to lose my car.”
Lotto night comes, and the man still no luck. Once again, he prays, “My God, why have You forsaken me? I’ve lost my business, my house and my car. My children are starving. I don’t often ask You for help, and I have always been a good servant to You. PLEASE let me win the Lotto just this one time so I can get my life back in order.”
Suddenly there is a blinding flash of light as the heavens open. The layman is overwhelmed by the voice of God Himself: “Hey, mister, work with Me on this. Buy one lousy ticket!”
