Introduction to the Liturgy – King from the Cross – The account of David’s anointing, in today’s first reading, speaks of his closeness to the people and his future role as a shepard-king.  In Luke’s gospel, the inscription placed on the cross does, in fact, point to the reality, the reign of Jesus.  But this descendant of David comes to the throne though the path of rejection and death.  The criminal crucified with Christ is assured a place in the reign of God as death envelops both king and suppliant.  The reading from Colossians speaks of the lordship of Jesus as embracing not only the church but all of creation.

From the Saints From a notebook On Prayer by Origen, priest – The kingdom of God, in the words of our Lord and Savior, does not come for all to see; nor shall they say: Behold, here it is, or behold, there it is; but the kingdom of God is within us, for the word of God is very near, in our mouth and in our heart. Thus, it is clear that he who prays for the coming of God’s kingdom prays rightly to have it within himself, that there it might grow and bear fruit and become perfect. For God reigns in each of his holy ones. Anyone who is holy obeys the spiritual laws of God, who dwells in him as in a well-ordered city. The Father is present in the perfect soul, and with him Christ reigns, according to the words: We shall come to him and make our home with him. (Matins, 34th Sunday in Ordinary Time)
