Feast of Christ the King

And through him to reconcile all things unto himself, making peace through the blood of his cross, both as to the things that are on earth and the things that are in heaven.
Col 1:20

The only way to save souls is to restore all things in Christ.  It's so easy to complain about this world and all the wrongness in it.  However, as our priest pointed out today, we very often forget to renew within ourselves.  That is where it starts.  We are here to make those around us recognize Christ Our King, we do that by making Him Our King and show it by the life we live, by dying to ourselves, abandoning our sins and conforming our will to His. And just what is His Will?  He taught us by His own life:  He gave up the earthly kingdom to be born in a stable, to be insulted and ridiculed and to die the death of a criminal.  That's Our King!  To claim Him as Our King we must be crucified with Him.  Our Blessed Mother teaches us how to do this.... with great love!

Long live Christ the King!
