Jesus is the One

In both of today’s readings, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is recognized as the key person in human and cosmic history.

The Gospel (Luke 19:41-44) presents us with a prophecy that Jerusalem would be destroyed because it failed to recognize the time of its visitation by Christ (and so it would be).

The first reading (Revelation 5:1-10) presents us with a prophecy in which Christ, the Lamb that was slain, is hailed as only one to execute God’s cosmic plan (and so he is).

Is Christ the key person in our lives?
