The kingship of Christ is lived out through service to those in need, said the homilist at the annual Washington, D.C. Mass for those with special needs and those who care for them.
"We must remember – Jesus reigns. He is a king who serves. His royalty is in giving back," said Monsignor John Enzler, president and CEO of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington.
In his homily, Msgr. Enzler shared how his own life had been shaped by volunteer work with those who have special needs.
"I learned a lot from this community about love shared and love given back to those who share their blessings," he said. "In many ways, I might even say my vocation as priest began to be formed in that experience of serving and helping those in need."
