THESE PRECIOUS THINGS
    
Every time we work for these precious things - Truth, Life, Holiness, Grace, Justice, Love, and Peace - we are working for Jesus, we make Jesus Christ our true king.  
 
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
The scriptures present us with the choice between two kingdoms - the kingdom of light and the kingdom of darkness. The choice is ours. Which kingdom do you serve? God's kingdom remains forever because it is built on the foundation of God's eternal love and justice. To accept Jesus as Lord and King is to enter a kingdom that will last forever where righteousness, peace, truth, and love dwell.
 
Today we honor Jesus Christ as our King. In the Gospel of Luke: We read the words from the repentant thief, "Lord, remember me when you come into your kingdom." Jesus replied: "Amen, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise." That act of forgiveness is the promise of God's eternal love. One of the thieves repents for his sins to receive the kingdom of light and the other took the road of the kingdom of darkness.
 
In the Preface of today's Mass we pray, "... that offering Himself upon the cross...  He might accomplish the mystery of human redemption and, making all created things  subject to his rule, he might present to the immensity of your majesty an eternal and universal kingdom,  a kingdom of Truth and Life, of Holiness and Grace, a kingdom of Justice, Love, and Peace."
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: Every time we work for these precious things - Truth, Life, Holiness, Grace, Justice, Love, and Peace - we are working for Jesus, we make Jesus Christ our true king. I just read about the following key principles of life and want to share them with you...
 
Truth: Tell the truth, no matter what it costs, and we serve Christ, the king of truth.
 
Life: Jesus came that we may have life. His followers must promote life. For example, do everything possible to prevent the killing of millions of innocent babies by abortion.
 
Holiness and Grace: Whatever we do to increase God's life in us. To hear the call of service as Jesus did, he came to serve and not be served. Service is a true Icon of who Jesus is...
 
Justice:  When we try to be honest in our dealings with God, our neighbor, and ourselves, we are casting a vote for Christ as our leader, our king.
 
Love:  Every time we try to please God and to help others we are truly showing the outstanding mark of who we really are we a subject of Christ the King...
 
Peace:  Make every effort to promote peace - everywhere - and show that we belong to Jesus kingdom of peace.
