LAST SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME: OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, KING OF THE UNIVERSE C Lectionary #162
To whom do you pledge ultimate allegiance? And what does that pledge mean to you?

2 Samuel 5:1-3. The tribes of Israel pledge allegiance to David because they believe he is God's anointed ruler.

Psalm of the Day: Ps (121) 122. This “song of ascent,” sung by pilgrims headed to Jerusalem, reflects the city's role as the center of Davidic rule and of worship. Christians often use this psalm as an image of the New Jerusalem.

Colossians 1:12-20. Paul borrows an early hymn text to describe the One to whom we owe allegiance: the firstborn of all creation; the head of the body, the Church; and the firstborn from the dead.

Luke 23:35-43. Sometimes, what you see isn't what you get. Sometimes you have to see with the eyes of faith.
