Feast of Christ the King

As we celebrate the Feast of Christ the King, the Marists invite you to reflect on the Words of Pope Francis.

“And so our King went to the ends of the universe in order to embrace and save every living being.

He did not condemn us, nor did he conquer us, and he never disregarded our freedom, but he paved the way with a humble love that forgives all things, hopes all things, sustains all things (cf. 1 Cor13:7)

This love alone overcame and continues to overcome our worst enemies: sin, death, fear. …

We joyfully share the splendor of having Jesus as our King: his rule of love transforms sin into grace, death into resurrection, fear into trust.

It would mean very little, however, if we believed Jesus was King of the universe, but did not make him Lord of our lives: all this is empty if we do not personally accept Jesus and if we do not also accept his way of being King.” (- Pope Francis)

Lord, open our hearts and transform them. Help us to welcome the gift of your Kingdom in our lives so that everyday we can repeat: Thy Kingdom Come!
