WK 34C (2016)

We come to the end of another liturgical year with the Solemnity of Christ the King of the Universe. Jesus Christ is not only the “King of the Jews,” as Pilate wrote on the cross, but also the “King of Kings.” And, He is King of Kings for two reasons: first, because of who He is, and second, because of what He did. Let’s examine these two reasons. First, Jesus is King of Kings because who he is. Second, He earned the title because of what He did: He suffered and died for our salvation and rose from the dead. He is the Son of God and the Redeemer of the world. He gave us His very self. “No one has greater love than this that he lay down His life for His friends.” Long live the King!
