Reflexiones para la Homilía
¿Qué significa reinar? Declararse súbditos de un rey significa prometer obediencia a un
rey; pero la palabra obedecer quiere decir, en realidad, escuchar. Algunos de nosotros
llamamos a la persona que amamos “mi rey” o “mi reina”; es una manera de decir quien
tiene nuestro corazón y nuestro sentimiento; es una manera de decir a quien
obedecemos, es decir, a quien escuchamos.
Hay personas que no quisieran llamar a Cristo Rey, porque les parece un titulo
triunfalista y dominante y su Cristo es de paz y de justicia. Quizá entonces haya que volver
al concepto de obediencia, de reinado, como la afirmación de a quien se ama y se
escucha, se sigue y se obedece. Decir que Cristo es Rey es reconocer que el Cristo vivo, el
que nos da la vida desde la cruz, es a quien amamos, escuchamos, seguimos y
obedecemos. El reconocimiento de ese Cristo es la confesión de que solo el Tiene un
reinado de vida verdadera, que conquista todas la tinieblas de muerte a nuestro
alrededor; que solo Cristo tiene un reinado de paz; y que solo el reconcilia todas las cosas
en si mismo, “haciendo la paz por la sangre de su cruz”.
Cristo no es un rey de cuento, sino un rey de verdad. El único que puede reinar en
mentes y en corazones, y puede atraer la obediencia de las personas que, siguiéndole a el,
construyan un reino de paz.
