Matthew 25:31-46

Matthew’s depiction of the last judgment is certainly challenging, if not frightening, yet it is nothing that Jesus has not taught before. All people will be judged on how they cared for the “least.” In the context of the other readings on this Solemnity, there is the reminder that the Lord is a shepherd who lovingly cares for his sheep. He models how we must care for one another.

I encounter so many people in distress, physically, emotionally, spiritually. Show me the way to care for each one of your flock, Lord, as you care for me.
