Speak Lord: Son of Man, saviour of humankind

DSC07561aI gazed into the visions of the night.

And I saw, coming on the clouds of heaven, one like a son of man.

He came to the one of great age and was led into his presence.

On him was conferred sovereignty, glory and kingship, and men of all peoples, nations and languages became his servants.

His sovereignty is an eternal sovereignty which shall never pass away, nor will his empire ever be destroyed.

First reading for the Solemnity of Christ the King
Daniel 7:13-14

The loving life of heaven is seen as source of our salvation here on earth and for eternity.

Such love reaches to us; such love provokes, teases and draws response even from humankind.
