Our Lord Jesus Christ King of the Universe


“The faithful, moreover, by meditatingChristtheKing upon these truths, will gain much strength and courage, enabling them to form their lives after the true Christian ideal. If, to Christ our Lord is given all power in heaven and on earth; if all men, purchased by his precious blood, are by a new right subjected to his dominion; if this power embraces all men, it must be clear that not one of our faculties is exempt from his empire. He must reign in our minds, which should assent with perfect submission and firm belief to revealed truths and to the doctrines of Christ. He must reign in our wills, which should obey the laws and precepts of God. He must reign in our hearts, which should spurn natural desires and love God above all things, and cleave to Him alone. He must reign in our bodies and in our members, which should serve as instruments for the interior sanctification of our souls, or to use the words of the Apostle Paul, as instruments of justice unto God.” [9]

                                                                   -Pope Pius XI

For Reflection:

I will be praying for the graces to love Christ the King of Kings more today than I did yesterday, but not as much as I will tomorrow so He will permeate me, body, mind and soul as an ‘instrument(s) of justice unto God’.

 Pg 41  Daniel informs us that the Antichrist will attach all that is holy and worthy of respect, exalt himself boldly against the God of gods and consider as nothing the God of his Fathers: “Is Deum patrum suorum non reputabit.” The apostle Paul adds that Christ will kill him.  All these various aspects and characteristics evidently cannot be applied to an ideal, abstract being; they can fit only an individual of flesh and blood–a real, definite personage.
