November 26, 2017 • Feast of Christ the KingSunday Readings: Ezekiel 34:11–12, 15–17; 1 Corinthians 15:20–26, 28; Matthew 25:31–46For Catechists and TeachersScripture BackgroundSunday’s Gospel compares the Last Judgment to a shepherd separating sheep from goats. In the story, the shepherd distinguishes the sheep not by the curl in their woolly coats but by their merciful actions. The sheep are people who have fed the hungry, given drink to the thirsty, sheltered the stranger, clothed the naked, and visited the sick and imprisoned. Jesus offers us a clear message for how we should treat other people.Connecting Scripture and DoctrineGood News asks the children to reflect on how they show care for others and to thank God for all who care for them.“The works of mercy are charitable actions by which we come to the aid of our neighbor in his spiritual and bodily necessities.... The corporal works of mercy consist especially in feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, clothing the naked, visiting the sick and imprisoned, and burying the dead” (CCC, 2447).“On the Last Day Jesus will say: ‘Truly I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me’” (CCC, 678, citing Matthew 25:40).“At the end of time, the Kingdom of God will come in its fullness. Then the just will reign with Christ for ever” (CCC, 1060). See also CCC, 561, 682, 1038, and 1042.Single-Session Lesson Pacing GuidesNote: These pacing guides are suggestions for how to present the lesson.
