Welcome to Sacred Heart Catholic Church


 

                Pastor’s Corner

· Today’s readings tell us, Jesus will come to judge the living and the dead and give the kingdom over to the Father.

· The theme of the final judgment, including the images of divine kingship and a divine shepherd, dominates today’s liturgy.  Instituted by Pope Pius XI in 1925, this feast offers us the opportunity to deepen our understanding of the mystery of Christ and beckons us to encounter Jesus, the true shepherd who guides his flock home to his father.

· The prophet Ezekiel speaks of a God who will shepherd his flock and judge between the rams and the goats.  Saint Paul tells the Corinthians that at Christ’s coming he will hand over his kingdom to his Father.  In St. Matthew’s Gospel today, Jesus describes how he, as shepherd, will recognize those who served him serving the least among his family.
