November 29. Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe
The church year ends this week. Along with that we’re invited to consider another ending: our mortality. What goes on in eternity anyway? Thomas Aquinas declares that God and eternity are the same. When we go from here, we go to God. How we experience the Divine Presence depends on whether our lives have become fully compatible with Love. Francis de Sales envisions Jesus saying to us: “Be it done as you desire; and because of what you have done, come, enjoy eternity.” The desire of my heart will be answered. Will the choice be a life of love?
