The Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe

This Feast Day is enhanced by asking, and answering a few questions:

Who is Jesus?
What does He mean in your life?

We call Him Messiah or Christ. Do those words mean anything to you personally?
We call Him Savior, Redeemer and Lord. What effect does this have in your life?
In the Scriptures, He is called Son of David, Son of God and Son of Man.
Are those just words, or do they have a meaning for you?

The Church is constant in seeking ways to express the mystery of Jesus, the Christ. Each title for Jesus should have some meaning for our lives. Today we use the title ‘King’. This title may have little relevance in our democratic world. But by this title, we seek to recognize that Jesus is the heart and center of our lives. We live for Him. We find the meaning of all things in Him. We accept His rule over our lives, and we live by His code of morality. It means that we strive to follow His will and to serve Him in everything we think, say and do.

May Christ be King in your heart, now and always, All-Ways.
