Welcome to Christ The King Catholic Church, located near historic downtown High Point, NC. We are a growing and active Catholic community with a long and culturally diverse history. From our humble beginnings as a mission church to serve the African-American Catholics in 1940, our parish has grown to be a vibrant witness to the Gospel of Life.
Sunday Eucharist is the heart of our parish community as it gives us life, strengthens us and calls us to holiness. We are committed to Catholic education and teaching of our faith through our Youth ministry and in our lifelong Faith Formation Program.
Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
The parable of the Two Sons of this Sunday is probably one of the most understandable parables in the Gospel. The first son represents the sinners of Jesus’ day—tax collectors and prostitutes—who at first refused to serve in the Lord’s vineyard. However, at the preaching of John the Baptist, they repented and did what was right and just. The second son represents Israel’s leaders—who said they would serve God in the vineyard, but refused to believe in John’s call for repentance and receive the Son of God.
The point here is clear, the chief priests and elders, the ones who spoke most often about God in words, did not respond to God’s calling in actions. On the other hand, God’s calling was responded by those one would not expect to repent—tax collectors, prostitutes, and other sinners. Because of their actions, these sinners will enter the Kingdom of God ahead of the religious leaders.
It is a parable about obedience and disobedience. It is about compliance and rebellion. It is about changing one’s mind in a positive way to serve the Lord in the vineyard or in a negative way to walk away from the vineyard. It is about the choices we make in life.
Let us always be the first son, though we may have been false in our actions and words, to strive to return to the vineyard and to do the will of the Lord. May God bless us all!
