FIRST READING:
Ezek. 34: 11-12, 15-17 "You, my flock, I judge between sheep and goats."

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:
Ps. 23 "The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want."

SECOND READING:
1 Cor. 15: 20-26, 28 "He will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, so that God may be all in all."

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:
Mt. 11: 10 "Blessed is he who inherits the kingdom of David our father; blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord."

GOSPEL: Mt. 25: 31-46
"He will sit upon his seat of glory and he will separate one from another."


FOCUS: "He will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, so that God may be all in all."

REFLECTION: "The kingdom of God is within us when God reigns in us, when the soul in its depths confesses God as its Master, and is obedient to Him in all its powers. Then God acts within it as master "both to will and to do of his good pleasure" (Phil. ii. 13). This reign begins as soon as we resolve to serve God in ourLord Jesus Christ, by the grace of the Holy Spirit. Then the Christian hands over to God his consciousness and freedom, which comprises the essential substance of our human life, and God accepts the sacrifice; and in this way the alliance of man with God and God with man is achieved, and the covenant with God, which was severed by the Fall and continues to be severed by our willful sins, is re-established. This inner alliance is sealed, confirmed, and given the strength to maintain itself by the power of grace in the divine sacrament of baptism, and for those who have fallen after baptism, in the sacrament of repentance: and afterwards it is constantly strengthened by holy communion.
All Christians live thus; and consequently they all bear the kingdom of God within themselves, that is to say they obey God as King and are ruled by God as King.
Speaking about the kingdom of God within us, one must always add: in the Lord Jesus Christ, by the grace of the Holy Spirit. This is the mark of the Christian—the kingdom of God within us. God is the King over all, He is the Creator of all things and in His Providence watches over them all: but He truly reigns in the soul and is truly professed there as King only after the re-establishment of that union of the soul with Him which was broken by the Fall. And this union is effected by the Holy Spirit in the Lord Jesus Christ, our Saviour." Theophane the Recluse

The Lord
is my shepherd; there is nothing
I shall want.

The kingdom of heaven is within you. Insofar as the Son of God dwells in you, the kingdom of heaven lies within you also. Here within are the riches of heaven, if you desire them. Here, O sinner, is the kingdom of God within you. Enter into yourself, seek more eagerly and you will find it without great travail. Outside you is death, and the door to death is sin. Enter within yourself and remain in your heart, for there is God. St. Ephraim of Syria

APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY Introduction to the Liturgy: Today is the last Sunday of the liturgical year, the 34th Sunday in Ordinary Time. Our thoughts are directed to the endtimes, when the way we have
lived will determine how we will spend eternity. Let us examine our thoughts and behavior in this light.

GENERAL INTERCESSIONS
let us call to mind God's many blessings and give him thanks. Let us adore him., in whom we place our faith, let us pray to him who loves us:
• For the Church of God, may we remain true to the teachings of Christ;
• For peace throughout the world, may we rid our hearts of all violence;
• For our suffering friends here and
throughout the world, may we relieve their pain to the best of our ability;
• For our local community, may we lead
the way to God through love.
Preface: Christ the King
Invitation to the Lord's Prayer: See fourth sample invitation to prayer.
Consider using a fraction rite Lamb of God drawing titles for Jesus from today's readings.
Concluding Rite-
Prayers over the People: Twentieth

Faith Formation
In today's gospel reading, Jesus is once again telling us what he expects of us: What we do for the least of his children, we do for him. He is telling us to love, to be kind, to be generous. To love.

Children‘s Liturgy of the Word
God wants us to be loving. To feed the hungry, to give drink to the thirsty, to welcome the stranger. How can we do this?
St. ThŽrŹse of Lisieux wanted to be a missionary, to go out and feed the hungry. But she was unable to do that. So she found a way to please God: In being kind and loving to everyone around her in small ways, she expressed her love of God and His children.
