File - St. Edward Catholic Church
November 24, 2013, Solemnity, Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe
For us, Christ is everything. We
begin in each day in his presence.
We are his people, from many
walks of life, and from many nations
and languages. We adore the
Lord, address him with the psalms
of our ancestors and enter the
sacred Liturgy, the source and
summit in our life in Christ. Through
our Catechetical programs we pass
on the faith both to adults and
children, training in holiness which
calls us to a Holy life distinguished
above all in the art of prayer. Rising
from prayer we minister to the
needs of those who ask our help,
with food and other assistance. We
are the people of St. Edward
Catholic Church in Newark,
California. Christ is everything. If
you have a wound to heal, he is the
doctor; if you are in need of help,
he is strength; if you fear death, he
is life; if you desire Heaven, he is
the way; if you are in the darkness,
he is light. Blessed are they who
hope in him!
St Gregory of Nyssa's commentary on the Song of Songs
Where are you pasturing your flock, O good
Shepherd, who carry the whole flock on your shoulders? (for
the whole of human nature is one sheep and you have lifted
it onto your shoulders). Show me the place of peace, lead
me to the good grass that will nourish me, call me by name
so that I, your sheep, hear your voice, and by your speech
give me eternal life. Answer me, you whom my soul loves.
I give you the name ‘you whom my soul loves’
because your name is above every name and above all
understanding and there is no rational nature that can utter it
A greater love cannot be imagined, than
exchanging your life for my salvation.
or comprehend it. Therefore your name, by which your
goodness is known, is simply the love my soul has for you.
How could I not love you, when you loved me so much, even
though I was black, that you laid down your life for the sheep
of your flock? A greater love cannot be imagined, than
exchanging your life for my salvation.
Show me then (my soul says) where you pasture your
flock, so that I can find that saving pasture too, and fill myself
with the food of heaven without which no-one can come to
eternal life, and run to the spring and fill myself with the drink
of God. You give it, as from a spring, to those who thirst –
water pouring from your side cut open by the lance, water
that, to whoever drinks it, is a spring of water welling up to
eternal life.
If you lead me to pasture here, you will make me lie
down at noon, sleeping at peace and taking my rest in light
(Continued on page 3)
For us, Christ is Everything!

unstained by any shade. For the noon has no shade
and the sun stands far above the mountain peaks.
You bring your flock to lie in this light when you bring
your children to rest with you in your bed. But no one
can be judged worthy of this noonday rest who is not
a child of light and a child of the day. Whoever has
separated himself equally from the shadows of
evening and morning, from where evil begins and
evil ends, at noon he will lie down and the sun of
righteousness will shine on him.
Show me, then (my soul says), how I should
sleep and how I should graze, and where the path is
to my noonday rest. Do not let me fall away from
your flock because of ignorance, and find myself one
of a flock of sheep that are not yours. Thus my soul
spoke, when she was anxious about the beauty that
God’s care had given her and wanted to know how
she could keep this good fortune forever.

Missa Domingo Jesus Cristo Rei Do Universo
Comentário: Com a festa de Cristo Rei, chegamos a mais um
final de ano litúrgico. Durante este, a cada domingo acolhemos
os ensinamentos de Jesus através dos escritos do evangelista
Lucas. A festa que celebramos tem a finalidade não tanto de
nos dizer que Jesus é Rei, mas de nos mostrar que a natureza do
seu reinado é completamente diferente daquela com as quais
nós estamos habituados. Jesus durante toda a sua atividade
pública falava do seu Reino. E o apresentou como uma pedra
preciosa e um tesouro num campo: bens preciosos escondidos;
o que torna bastante interessante e desafiadora a busca deste
reino, e não impossível a sua descoberta para quem o procura.
O tesouro, obviamente, é o próprio Jesus; e, no Evangelho de
hoje, vemos claramente como este tesouro está escondido, pois,
é preciso ver com os olhos da fé para entender que um homem
pendurado numa cruz, que sofre por horas a condenação à
morte com uma das penas mais humilhantes, parecendo nada
mais que um derrotado, um perdedor, rejeitado e desprezado,
seja verdadeiramente um Rei. Para a lógica do mundo, isto é
um absurdo. Esta lógica é a dos chefes judaicos. Enquanto o
povo observava tudo aquilo com grande dificuldade de
compreensão, os chefes do povo caçoavam de Jesus, dizendo:
“a outros ele salvou. Salve-se a si mesmo, se, de fato, é o Cristo
de Deus, o escolhido!”; mas, no fundo, não acreditavam naquilo
que diziam, por isso mesmo, o provocavam e o insultavam.
Também os soldados faziam algo semelhante, mas como não
eram judeus, até o chamavam de “rei dos judeus”, e pediam que
ele se salvasse por si só. Pediam para que ele mostrasse o seu
poder. Até mesmo a escrita colocada sobre a cruz: “este é o rei
dos judeus”, era uma maneira de ofensa. Nesta mesma direção,
um dos malfeitores que estava sendo crucificado junto com
Jesus, o insultava pedindo com ironia pra que Jesus salvasse a
si mesmo e a eles também, os dois malfeitores. Realmente, a
cruz põe uma grande interrogação sobre toda a obra precedente
de Jesus, pois parece desmentir claramente tudo aquilo que ele
fez e disse. Uma pessoa que está pendurada numa cruz preste a
morrer, como pode salvar a outros? Quem depende da sua
ajuda, vendo aquela cena, só poderia rir, encontrar uma outra
ajuda ou se desesperar. É uma imagem bem diferente da que
temos de rei na nossa mente. E agora?
Aparece, então, uma última fala que parece até um milagre.
Pelo menos um dos presentes, diretamente envolvido na
situação, já que também está sendo crucificado, compreende
estar pertinho do tesouro da sua vida. É o outro malfeitor, que
nós o chamamos “bom ladrão”, o qual consegue compreender
aquele tesouro de graça, mesmo só nos últimos momentos de
sua vida. Ele reconhece que aquele homem crucificado, que não
desce da cruz, mas morre nela, é o seu Rei salvador. Ele tem fé
em Jesus Cristo. Sua oração testemunha isto: “Jesus, lembra- te
de mim quando entrares no teu reinado”; é o que pede a Jesus
condenado ao seu lado, que está sofrendo a mesma terrível
morte vergonhosa. Ele está convencido de que Jesus não fez
nada de mal e por isso, não merece morrer; e, que, por isso,
Jesus não acaba com a morte, mas que é através dela que ele
entrará no seu reino.
Assim, Jesus, com um último “decreto real” afirma, e assegura
ao malfeitor que pediu o seu amor que ele provará da alegria do
seu reino: “em verdade eu te digo, ainda hoje estarás comigo no
paraíso”. Jesus entrou no paraíso com um malfeitor, que na cruz
conseguiu a fé. Que imagem forte! É uma imagem como esta
que nos conscientiza claramente que nunca devemos condenar
ninguém, nem a nós mesmos, mas sempre estar dispostos a
aceitar o tesouro de Deus: o seu amor incondicional por nós.
Na cruz, a obra de Jesus chega ao ponto mais alto. O
crucificado mostra não ser um rei que garanta o bem estar
terreno. Não salvou a si mesmo da cruz. Não nos preserva nem
das enfermidades nem da morte. O seu poder refere-se a nossa
vida com Deus. Jesus salva da queda do afastamento de Deus e
reconduz à comunhão com ele. Quem busca isto nele, será
salvo por ele, mesmo que seja um malfeitor. A festa de Cristo
Rei, é a festa do deste amor que se doou por toda a humanidade.
