Christ the King Parish Kampala

We are truly privileged to be Catholic where we are constantly presented with the most essential and effective way to unit our souls (and lives), in Holy Communion, to Christ. Let us make the effort to keep our bodies pure, in order to keep Him ever present in our lives as He is often present in the Holy Eucharist. As it is well said in the Post-Communion prayer of St. Thomas Aquinas: "...I pray that this Holy Communion be, not to me a condemnation unto punishment, but a saving plea unto forgiveness. May It be unto me the Armour of faith and the Shield of good-will. May It purify me from evil ways and put an end to my evil passions...". Let us receive worthily, the Body of Our LORD and enjoy great peace.

PARISH PRIEST’S REFLECTION

THE SECOND SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR B
1 Samuel 3: 3-10, 19 |1 Corinthians 6: 13c-15a, 17-20 |John 1: 35-42

OUR PHYSICAL SENSES SHOULD ASSIST US TO RECOGNISE GOD AND MOVE INTO HIS PRESENCE

Let us begin our reflection with St. Paul’s cautioning in the Second Reading on the use of our bodily senses so as to recognize God and move into His presence ; “Brothers: The body is not meant for IMMORALITY, but for the LORD, and the Lord for the BODY. He who is united to the LORD becomes one SPIRIT with HIM. SHUN IMMORALITY.”

In the First Reading and the Gospel, there are two prominent physical senses that lead to God’s presence, where two bodily organs are used to access God. The First Reading from Samuel has the Sense of hearing and the Gospel of John highlights the Sense of Seeing. Let us first think of how we misuse these two senses of ours to commit Immorality! How much of our hearing lead us to sin and how much of our seeing lead us to SIN?

In the First Reading Samuel heard a call, but he went to his elder to inquire about the CALL he heard. It happened three times and he went to the elder to find out about the voices. How do we interpret the voices in our lives or who assists us to decipher what goes on in our lives. If the voices we hear in our lives lead us to Sin then it means that we misuse our body for Immorality and possibly we get the wrong people to interpret for us and we are misled. It is very crucial to relate with the proper individuals that will help us to decipher and interpret well.

Samuel’s Elder and interpreter, Eli perceived that the Lord was calling the boy and Eli advised Samuel to answer thus; “Go, lie down, and if He calls you, you will say, “speak, LORD, for your servant hears.”

Similarly the Gospel of St. John applying the physical sense of SEEING shows how John the Baptist pointed to the Lord Jesus Christ for his associates to see and follow the Lord: “The Baptist looked at Jesus as He walked and said, Behold, the Lamb of God.” The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed JESUS,” and they asked Jesus where are you staying?” Their sense of seeing was leading them to the presence of God: “Come and See.” How often does our sense of seeing lead us to destruction and immorality instead of discovering the Lord?

The sense of seeing should, direct us to the Lord and when we find Him, we should be eager to inform our neighbours. Andrew informed his brother Simon that they had found the Christ and he brought him to Jesus. Does our sense of SEEING help us to lead our brothers and sisters to the Lord or to SIN?

LORD JESUS HELP US ALWAYS TO GLORIFY YOU IN OUR BODIES AND DELIVER US FROM USING OUR SENSES FOR SINFUL ACTS.

PARISH PRIEST’S REFLECTION

THE THIRTIETH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR A
Exodus 22:21-27 ¦ 1 Thessalonians 1:5-10 ¦ Matthew 22:34-50

CHRIST COMMENDS LOVE THAT RESTORES JOY TO THE AFFLICTED, WOUNDED, UNLOVED AND LONELY; IT IS THE LOVE OF GOD.

Our First Reading today highlights the biblical concept of affliction in the pictures of widowhood and orphanage which are the common images of wounded people.

The afflicted, wounded, unloved and lonely people are the focus of Christ when He describes who the neighbour is. “Who is my neighbour?”

My neighbour is the afflicted, the wounded, unloved, the stranger, the poor, the widow and orphan according to the teaching of Christ. So when Christ summarizes the commandments in that single word of love of God and love of neighbour, He gives us a doze of what Christian love is.

The book of Exodus is one of the 5 books of the law in the Old Testament and in today’s First Reading the people are called upon to appreciate what God expects of them in the law: “You shall not wrong a stranger or oppress him/her, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.” If you longed to be free and to be home, please do not enslave others, but make all people feel at home. “You shall not afflict any widow and orphan, for My wrath will burn, and I will kill you with the sword and your wives shall become widows and your children orphans?”

This is a very visible and outstanding image of what the law of love is like: Love of neighbour.

“Do not be a creditor to a poor man to exact interest from him.” Love does not promote oppression of the weak and poor. God deals harshly with those who afflict the weak, the needy, the sick, and the wounded; in summary, the poor.

In today’s Gospel Jesus silences His opponents who had gone to test Him with the question: “Which is the great commandment in the Law?” The Law according to the Jewish biblical concept are the first five books of the Old Testament: (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy). His answer is brief and to the point: Love the LORD your God totally and love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments depend All the Law and the prophets.

The whole Bible is summarized in one word: LOVE. The Bible is the Law and prophets.

Christ’s love is a love that RESTORES LIFE to its fullness. He restores the afflicted, the weak, the poor, the sick and wounded. He accommodates the strangers and homeless. Jesus delivers us from the WRATH (ANGER) to come according to St. Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians in our Second Reading, if and when we follow his example of restoring a neighbour to dignity.

A Christian is proved by love of his/her neighbour. Like Christ, a Christian must work to restore life to the suffering, afflicted, wounded, the widow and orphan and the poor. She/he must be welcoming to the Stranger and homeless. We must restore the image of God to have a true balance of humanity.

The love that Christ recommends is a big challenge to us all! Let us pray for one another.

PARISH PRIEST’S REFLECTION

TWENTY – SIXTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR A
Ezekiel 18:25-28 ¦ Philippians 2:1-11 ¦ Matthew 21:28-32

GOD MANIFESTS HIS MIGHTY POWER ABOVE ALL BY PARDONING AND SHOWING MERCY: SO THE SO-CALLED BAD GUYS WILL GO INTO THE KINGDOM BEFORE THE APPARENT NICE GUYS WHEN THEY CHANGE

Any Father who receives a negative answer from his son from whom he seeks cooperation feels offended and possibly saddened. That is what one may suspect from Jesus’ story in the Gospel of today: “What do you think? A man had two sons; and he went to the first and said, “son go and work in the vineyard today. “And he answered, “I will not.” The answer sounds offensive with no filial sentiment and with a rough tone!

The second son who answers positively, “I will go sir” sounds polite and respectful. The first son appears the Bad Guy and the Second one the nice Guy! The Bad guy, however, does the Father’s will. In some other parts of the Gospels, Jesus refers to this type of attitude of a nice Guy as “HYPOCRICY” or pretense or mere acting without substance! The bad guy is obedient and the nice guy is disobedient!

Ezekiel in the First Reading cautions his audience not to judge God as the unjust one! The people say: “The way of the LORD is not just”: But God wonders: Is my way not just? Is it not your ways that are not just? The people pretend to be good like the good Guy, but behind the curtains they are committing iniquity! Those guys will die for the bad actions that they have committed. When a bad guy turns away from the wickedness he has committed and does what is respectful and good he shall save his life, he shall surely live, he will not die.

A Good guy does nothing from selfishness or deception (conceit), but acts in humility counting others better than himself or herself. This is the model of CHRIST: He was in the form of God, but did not count equality with God, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men and becoming obedient unto DEATH, even death ON A CROSS. That is the concluding message from the Second Reading in Paul’s letter to the Philippians. Jesus is portrayed as the bad Guy, but in reality He is the model of goodness. He is open, humble, simple, forgiving and keeps no anger. He does not revenge. His power is in pardoning.

Do we use well the opportunities we get to change and be like the first son in the Gospel? Remember Last Sunday’s message: The First will be last and the Last First.

LORD JESUS CHRIST HELP US TO RECOGNIZE YOU AS OUR ROLE MODEL.

PARISH PRIEST’S REFLECTION

THE TWENTY–FIFTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR A
Isaiah 55:6-9 ¦ Philippians 1:20-24, 27 ¦ Matthew 20:1-16

UNLIKE VENGEFUL HUMAN BEINGS, GOD ABUNDANTLY PARDONS AND GENEROUSLY GIVES TO ALL: THE LAST COMERS AND THE FIRST ONES ALIKE

In our First Reading today, Isaiah categorically states that God is totally different from human beings: “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” says the LORD. Human sentiments have a great tendency to revenge and our assessment of what we call justice is miles away from God’s appreciation of justice. For us justice is eye for eye and tooth for tooth!

While human beings are very vengeful often, God abundantly pardons. That is why Isaiah invites the community to seek the LORD while He may be found and to call Him while He is near, stop looking away from God and return to the LORD as a model. To look away from God is to sin and to look back to Him is what the word conversion means. The Justice of God is Mercy to anyone who looks up to Him. So God’s message to Isaiah the prophet is very simple: Human beings can hardly understand God’s Justice: “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, “says the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.”

The message of Prophet Isaiah links up well with Christ’s message in Today’s Gospel. Christ compares God to a Farmer who hires Labourers for his vineyard or coffee plantation. God does not respect the amount of time a labourer spends out in the plantation when it comes to payment for the labour offered! Working for twelve hours and for one hour does not attract a difference in the amount of salary paid! God’s justice in this case is mercy to the last hired labourer who had been idle all day. The owner of the Vineyard negotiates the salary with the first comers but not with the last ones who had been idle: Mercy is not negotiated, but just granted.

The last comers that go to work in the vineyard represent those who receive the Justice of God, which is reported by Isaiah in the First Reading. God’s thoughts are not our thoughts and His ways are distant from our ways like Heaven is distant from the earth. The Justice of God is MERCY, LOVE, FORGIVENESS, CHARITY and RECONCILITION and HARMONY.

So, in the Second Reading St. Paul counsels us saying: “where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every shameful or disgusting practice.” But the wisdom from above that is God’s justice is PURE, PEACEABLE, GENTLE, OPEN TO REASON, FULL OF MERCY and GOOD FRUITS without INSINCERITY.

What causes insincere decisions and wars and fighting among us? Is it not our unguided passions: Love for power, wealth, authority etc…?

Why such statements like, “…we have the army”? Why do we not say that we have the people?

LORD MAY YOUR JUSTICE GUIDE OUR PASSIONS WHICH ARE SELFISH.
