Sunday 29th Nov – Gospel Reflection

Matt 25:31 Jesus said: “When the Son of
Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on the
throne of his glory. 32 All the nations
will be gathered before him, and he will
separate people one from another as a
shepherd separates the sheep from the
goats, 33 and he will put the sheep at
his right hand and the goats at the left.
34 Then the king will say to those at his
right hand, ‘Come, you that are blessed
by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; 35 for I was hungry and you
gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave
me something to drink, I was a stranger
and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked
and you gave me clothing, I was sick and
you took care of me, I was in prison and
you visited me.’ 37 Then the righteous
will answer him, ‘Lord, when was it that
we saw you hungry and gave you food,
or thirsty and gave you something to
drink? 38 And when was it that we saw
you a stranger and welcomed you, or
naked and gave you clothing? 39 And
when was it that we saw you sick or in
prison and visited you?’ 40 And the king
will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just
as you did it to one of the least of these
who are members of my family, you did
it to me.’ 41 Then he will say to those at
his left hand, ‘You that are accursed, depart from me into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels; 42 for
I was hungry and you gave me no food,
I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to
drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did
not welcome me, naked and you did not
give me clothing, sick and in prison and
you did not visit me.’ 44 Then they also
will answer, ‘Lord, when was it that we
saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger
or naked or sick or in prison, and did not
take care of you?’ 45 Then he will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you
did not do it to one of the least of these,
you did not do it to me.’ 46 And these
will go away into eternal punishment,
but the righteous into eternal life.”

(Matthew 25:31-46)
