Caring for His kingdom

You see the real question is do we care for God's creation?

Today, the last Sunday of the liturgical year, we celebrate the Solemnity of Christ, the King of the Universe. Each time we say the “Our Father”, we pray “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done…”

It is you and I, His instruments here on earth, who have to act as servant-leaders to ensure that His Kingdom of justice, peace, truth, love and forgiveness become a reality. We have our mandate in Luke 4: 18–19. We are the ones He has sent to “bring the good news to the poor, to proclaim liberty to captives and to the blind new sight, to set the downtrodden free, to proclaim the Lord’s year of favour.”
